Spambots shall not pass


As far as you know, spamming from your domain will lower your rating and in the future, your emails will fall into the Spam folder. This is not good.

What next

Set up Google reCAPTCHA for your project

We highly recommend install and configure Google reCAPTCHA for all the forms on your website. Also, I want point out that captcha is required for using the Email service.


reCAPTCHA is a free service that protects your website from spam and abuse. reCAPTCHA uses an advanced risk analysis engine and adaptive CAPTCHAs to keep automated software from engaging in abusive activities on your site. It does this while letting your valid users pass through with ease.
