    In the WordPress repository, it indicates that Contact Form 7 uses Akismet for spam filtering but I could not find any documentation on how this works or enabling it. I have the Really Simple Captcha installed but a lot of bots are still coming through. Any information on enabling Akismet or any documentation would be much appreciated.

    You need to have Akismet (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/akismet/) installed and activated and Contact Form 7 will automatically use it.

    Of course, in order to activate Akismet, you will need an API key from http://akismet.com/

    Thanks, I activated Akismet and entered a key. It should work now! Thank you for this!

    Uh, no. You need to set options to tags additionally.
