    One possibility that most people don't think about is to set your email address and phone number as graphics rather than text. Bots cannot read the graphic.

    Just a thought.

    Thx for your idea... it's not that.

    The spam is coming through my cf7 callback form and there is no email address to see for the users.

    i.e. every day there are approx. 15 same emails, which are coming through my cf7 callback form.

    Okay, you need someone smarter than me, which still leaves a lot of people that hopefully can offer you some help.

    Tried spam filtering with akismet you described here:

    Also tried the Viagra test... put the code in the mail, name, and message field... and got a green ok message instead of the expected red.
    Don't understand that... can you help?
