Hello,

I have a contact form on my website here. It seems some spamming bot has discovered my contact page and has been using it to send tons of spam emails to my inbox. Is there any way to prevent this?

The website is on a Windows Server 2003 machine running IIS 6. It was programmed in C#.

Hello -

Your link is asking to be Spammed by everything out there, at the moment.

You have also just posted an open link here that can / will increase your Spam.

 

Do you have any incoming Spam Filter ? You need one.

Even my Yahoo emails would call them Spam after I post them into Spam twice .....

 

By posting that link here, you just asked 10 more Viagra sellers to post to you.

 

Spam Filter and Cut ease of access are the 2 better ideas I know of -

 

Thank You -

I suggest that you add a captcha box. http://www.google.com/recaptcha

 

You can also add a question to the form like What comes after twenty six? or How many states are there in the US? The spam bot cannot answer them, only a real human being can.
