Does anyone know what to do in order to protect spam mail from the contact us page. I've had about 60 spam emails today from my assigned mail on the contact page. It's really annoying.
Anyone else have this issue?
Can anything be done about this?


thnx

Hi Mike,

I can't answer about the gadget in CP, but generally tou need to tighten up on your form script. This sort of stuff is getting more common and can be used badly too. Please tale a look at this thread where the problem is discussed and Andy comes up with a very good way around the problem. It will mean a little work though.
