Hi, I have a form on my website that emails me when someone submits information on it. For the past few days, I have been receiving emails from this that appear to be jibberish. When I tested it and sent one to myself it was fine. I was hoping to confirm that it is not my website doing this. Also, I was wondering what is causing this. Thank you.

It is caused by someone being a jerk by entering gibberish in your forms.

Hi Tanya

It could be what KanThaiDecor said or it could be a spambot. Do you have Captcha on your form? This can help cut down on the spam.

I seem to go through spells where this happens to me also even with Captcha......Chances are it is kids thinking it is funny. but since adding Captcha I have not had anything from obvious spambots.

If you place your url here, I and probably other Yola customers will send a brief reply, which should show you if it works reliably.
