Hi Brian, Thanks for the reply.
My honeypot currently consists of a form element which has is set to display: none; in CSS.
Is it better to move the field off the page rather than just hide it ?
my php then looks for text in the field, which, if present, sets my suspect flag to true and then doesn't send the mail when the form is submitted.
My form ALSO has a captcha, but I still get some spam through.
My logic behind the original question, was that all the spam I seem to get has the first item from my select list as the mail title, so if i could hide the first item to humans, i could process the suspect list value accordingly.
Just looked at the code on my page to refresh my memory, and I noticed a minor typo in my code which meant the suspect flag wasn't being set, even if the honeypot had some text input.
That would explain a lot.
