    Hi, I have a client that is getting spam signups via her email list opt-in form. does Akismet help with that? Or does it only work with reducing spam with comments?

    The Akismet plugin only works automatically for the comment form and some contact forms. If you were so inclined, you could write a plugin to check email list opt-ins with Akismet, but it does not do it out of the box.

    Thanks so much for getting back to me. Is there a list of contact forms (plugins) that it integrates with? Or, like how would I know if it was actually working with a contact form?

    All of Akismet’s existing integrations are listed here:

    Your choices for contact forms are:

    • Gravity Forms
    • Fast Secure Contact Form
    • Contact Form 7
    • Jetpack

    I hope that helps!
