I keep getting contacted through my online form by people who create a nonsense subject and message but give what looks like a valid email address such as:
Subject: uifhgifehierrt8
Email: validemail@gmail.com
Message: oijdfivovneiucbr

Have you experienced the same?
What do you do with these contacts? (I have just been deleting them).
Any thoughts appreciated... Thank you.
Richard.

I don't know what form you're using friend. I use the Google form to capture E-mails if people are interested to see more on my message. I've never gotten those weird e-mails like yours. It seemed someone was not serious and he/she was just putting anything out there. I would agree with you to delete it. All the best!

Hey Richard,

After awhile using the basic contact form on my contact page, I found the rate of spam was so high that... well, here's what I did: to get rid of spammers... and I reduced my need of a plugin by one.

Hope you find this helpful.

Richard, I agree with the blocking. I would treat them just like a random phone call that that has no use.
