Support » Plugin: Contact Form 7 » Spam Filtering with Akismet

  • anjanphukan



    I tried to use Akismet spam protection in contact form 7 with the help of this article.

    My form has name and email fields so I added akismet:author and akismet:author_email with the fields. Then I tried the form with some random spam emails. But it doesn’t stop them. They just go to my inbox.

    Do I need to replace the FROM field email with the email tag? But the FROM field email need to end with an id from the same domain. Correct?

    Can you please help? I am using WP-Mail-SMTP plugin. Does it make any difference?

    If you are not a spammer, Akismet won’t block you. If you just want to test it, input viagra-test-123 into the author name field. This is written in the article.
