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 have access to the coding of your contact page, you could try implimenting Recapture yourself.
You'll need to sign up to Google for a free API key, and then add some code you your contact page.

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.
