Just in the last week (I have been using Leads on the site for over 2 years) I have been receiving emails that look exactly like my Leads notification emails but for which there are no entries in the leads lists I have created. I am still getting legitimate inquiries through the forms as I have tested this myself. I thought about adding the captcha plugin but if the entries are not being recorded then I wonder what would be the point if these are quite possibly not the result of a bot attacking the form (which has a honeypot). Has anyone else encountered this problem and did you find a solution? I would like to stick with using the Inbound Now plugins if possible.
Great, with akismet enabled you should see improved performance. We run the email through the akismet server and if it’s known spam it halts the process.
Inbound Now gets spam too even with captchas. There’s not much I can do about it since the spammers are using a technique that can beat the re-captcha or leveraging a human labor network to solve captchas for spam actions. They are out there.
