    Hi

    we are getting dozens of responses to our form every hour and they look like spam, e.g.

    >>njncdde

    lyckvc@gogfgr.com

    This mail is sent via contact form on <<

    is this a known problem?

    we don't know if it is a virus or someone is actually manually spamming us

    thank you

    I'm having the same problem, though not as frequently as that!

    I have got a lot of those too. Apparently, Contact Form 7 doesn't work with the CAPTCHA system to block spam. It's really a big problem.

    If the problem can't be resolved, we have to find a different plugin for contact form.

    Every time I open my email I have at least 20 spam messages sent from the same (unknown and uncontactable) email address. At the bottom of each spam message it says "This mail is created by Contact Form 7 plugin for WordPress". Is there any way I can stop these messages other than sending them to my Junk folder?
