    FYI, I made both changes and am still getting about 20 in 12 hours. I am just direct them to the deleted folder.

    Just for our info. After testing and use for awhile, is there more info/value from these emails than just that the database is down?

    All of the failures are because of the recaptcha. I noticed that the phone number is always 123456, the email appears to be correctly formed. In the drop down box, they always choose the same 2 options, the comment area, will usually have garbage, sometimes just "Sexua/pornol" words sometimes URLs. The IP address is always different.

    Hi,

    Please post the Subject line and first few lines of body.

    It doesn't sound like you're receiving FormMail alert messages.

    After testing and use for awhile, is there more info/value from these emails than just that the database is down?
    I don't understand the question. What database are you referring to? Why would it be "down"?

    Sorry for the confusion. The database that I'm talking about is where I have the form info populate. The down is the drop down boxes that I use in my form. Here is the email.

    To: pitzer@mysite.com
    From: FormMail@mysite.com

    The following error occurred in FormMail :
    recaptcha
    Error=reCaptcha verification failed (incorrect-captcha-sol)



    email: kevvin2004@33700.in
    realname: Motercalo BHobbit16

    Comments: 'Hi, I play WoW with my friends and like to live in <a href=http://www.motercalo.in>Motercalo</a> ++'

    Hi,

    This is a FormMail alert about a user making an error.

    The only reason you're receiving this is because you didn't make the ALERT_ON_USER_ERROR setting I suggested earlier.

    Please read the documentation I provided links to, and, if you don't understand, either post a question in the Community Support forum, or purchase a support subscription.

    Yes, you are right, I misread the instructions. I did read them, and tried to follow them, just screwed up.

    Thanks for your patience
