Hello,

I got more spam emails from probbox.com for my website, it send more email via my contact form. How can I stop this email using Plesk Onyx? Although It sent via contact form but I could not find this form where it submitted hence I want to use my hosting control panel to stop email spam.

Hello Kaz,

Thanks for asking here in the forum. I would be happy to help! :)

One way you can prevent spam or minimize spam from your websites contact form is a
Captcha Form Protection system. I have listed a few below that many use and they are very good at preventing spam:
  • reCAPTCHA v2 (Google's reCAPTCHA system)
  • Invisible reCAPTCHA
  • Akismet (Wordpress Plugin)
  • Contact Form 7 Honeypot (Wordpress Plugin)
In regards to blocking the spam emails using the Plesk control panel this is somewhat hard as if the spam is being submitted via random emails using your website contact form then the spam filters in plesk may not work so well. However using a captcha system should definitely help you with your spam issues. There is also a tool in plesk for watching for outbound spam.

Feel free to let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks!

Thanks you for your answer, I could solve the problem from your suggestions, I added captcha to my form and remove any unnecessary forms and i didn't see any spam emails any more.
