I've been noticing that a good amount of spam emails have been coming across the store contact form/email.

I was curious as to if there was a fix? It is an issue in the last 6 months or so, and it is running the factory build captcha software.

Thanks

There are free extensions for this in the marketplace. It's worth having a captcha on the account signup page. I used to get lots of automatic account signups from the usual suspects. A captcha stopped this. I also use Crawlprotect to protect against hacks and SQL Injections.

What I should have said is "ReCaptcha".
