Using Jupiter theme at http://www.attwoodfunerals.co.uk but getting a lot of spam from contact form. We have the required captcha plugin in place. Any suggestions on how to stop this flow of spam please?Amir Rather Support Team 2 months, 2 weeks ago
When using the default PHP mailer(the programming language that WordPress is based on) in WordPress, especially on shared servers, emails will often be sent to the spam or junk by receiving email systems. Why does this happen? One problem is the “envelope sender” not being set.
The easiest way to fix the spam problem is to use an SMTP plugin. These plugins use the SMTP protocol to send an email rather than the WordPress PHP email function. You will need an email provider. Such as the email that comes with your web hosting account a provider like Gmail. You’ll also need to find your SMTP server details and username and password.
