    I have Akismet configured, back end tells me it is working correctly.

    I have added the following to the contact form 7 code:

    <p>Your Name (required)
    [text* your-name akismet:author] </p>

    <p>Your Email (required)
    [email* your-email akismet:author_email] </p>

    Yet viagra-test-123 is coming through to my inbox. Have I missed a step somewhere?

    Have you activated Akismet and set API key correctly?

    Yes, I have... the back end tells me the key is valid and "Akismet is working correctly. All servers are accessible."

    Akismet is working. I just tried submitting with viagra-test-123 as "Your Name" and got "Failed to send your message" error with orange border.
