I am using the site creator for my website. In the past few weeks I have received so much spam through the site (contact form) that I changed my e-mail address into a non-existing one.
I put N/A in front of all the fields and wrote my e-mail address in letters so that prospective clients can still reach me.

Is it not possible to do away with the form, but still hace a contact page?
There seems to be a new feature (with a non-existing imaxe: a red cross), a security code.

Has that been added today? As yesterday I still got about 30 spam messages.

The antispam image was added yesterday afternoon. Apr 19, 2007

By now the contact page is only available with the form given.
There is no other option.
The new feature you are talking about is a antispam image we added yesterday afternoon, in order to stop spammers though the contact page.
The red cross (because a non-existing image) doesnt affect in the anti-spam feature, but is something we are working and fixing.

Could you tell me if you continue reciving spam emails today?

I did a new version Apr 19, 2007

Few minutes ago I did a little modification in Contact page, to see if we can stop that spammers for a while.
Please, create the contact page again and tell me how it works now.

Seems to be working Apr 21, 2007

I re-instated my email address and I am not receiving spam anymore - the security code seems to be working although the funny red cross is still there.

Keep up the good work!

Anjo
