I have been using Akismet for around a year now and it has been fantastic.
However over the past three months, I have had issues with spam comment emails.
My problem is, I still receive an email notification of spam comments. Although when I log in to my WordPress dashboard it seems the comment is not awaiting moderation and is placed within the Spam section.
I though that with Akismet activated with my API key it would stop WordPress sending me spam comment email notifications because it seems to be working properly by sending the comment to spam within the dashboard.
