    Hi Folks,

    We've got a contact us on our webpage thats managed by a thurd party, they want to charge us a silly sum to intergrate RE-CAPTCHA and here's out predicament.

    On the contact us page it has the option to email us and these emails from from "[email protected]" is there a way in whm/cpanel to filter emails sent from this address through some kind of spam filter? we currently get 50+ spam emails a day from this address.

    Thanks in advance.

    Lee

    My contact page has an email address ascociated with our web site.
    [email protected]
    Does yours. ?

    The 50+ spam messages, are they coming from your [email protected], or are these general spam coming from everwhere but. ?

    If the spam is coing from [email protected], then these will be bots using your contact page to spam you.
    The only option would be some form of re-capture.

    If they are coming from everywhere else, then you could potentially use a filter in cpanel to block them.

    If you can determine any form of pattern with the spam, then you could create a filter in cpanel.
    But if they are all random, filtering them could be difficult.

    Not the best fix, but renaming your url might make them go away for a short while.
