I can’t find where I can view all our “contact us” requests. I know Akismet is flagged a bunch has SPAM and HAM but I need to validate that there are no valid requests coming in that are getting flagged as spam. According to Akismet Contact 7 should support this. Am I missing something or is this a plugin issue?
This is the email I got from akismet support when talking about the issue.
No, you are not. The plugin should be letting you see everything – both sent contacts and those it thinks are spam. If it is not then the plugin – Contact Form 7 – is doing something wrong. All I can suggest is ensuring you are using uptodate versions of it and then contacting the plugin author. We are unable to support their code, sorry.
Good point. The current version of Contact Form 7 doesn’t send email when they are spam. This is because if it sent all messages including spam it would be meaningless to use spam filter. In my opinion, spam filtering for contact form is in a somewhat different situation from spam filtering for comment form, since comments are expected to be published eventually while contact messages are private.
In the future release of Contact Form 7, it is planned to support saving data submitted through forms to DB in addition to sending them as mail. It will save whether ham or spam and you will be able to view messages blocked by Akismet on the dashboard. So please wait for a while.
