Spam from Contact Form

Hi Guys,

forgive me if this has been discussed before, but I have not found the thread...

I seem to be getting a lot of mail supposedly from my Contact Form (same headers Subject Line and mail box id etc.) sent by Russian spammers.

What would be the best way to provide two level protection for this if it is a robot, or alternative solutions Other than just hunting them down, finding them and..... well you know smile

I have not had this problem until the last couple of months, so a little distressing.....

Re: Spam from Contact Form

As You also use the wordpress theme, you might use a contact form plugin in wordpress instead an have that protected by a captcha. I have "Contact Form 7" from Takayuki Miyoshi who also offers a "Really Simple Captcha" alongside. I believe that was even included with the CE4 package.

Contact Form 7 is also what I use for WordPress forms.
