Spam emails despite form being unpublished

Post by RedDog777 » Thu Jul 04, 2024 4:09 pm

Hoping someone can help! I am receiving hundreds of spam emails from one form on my site - this form has been up for years with no problems - I have unpublished the form, removed my email address from the form and removed the link on my site to the form and yet I am still getting hundreds of emails everyday - the sender address is often a bunch of charachters and numbers - obviously not a real email address and sometimes it is just the number 1 - can anyone give me an idea how to make these enails stop?

Is this the Contact Component?

It have an Option "Send Copy my self" which you should turn off.
