I sthere a way to utilize a CAPTCHA Image verificator with an existing form mail I am using? My forms are really getting nailed.

I want to keep the existing formmail since I have it in use in so many places and I really like it but I would just like to add some sort of challenge question or image verification to stop the bots.

The current form mail I am using is from <snip>

Thanks in advance

Which code would you need? The actuall form coding or the PHP file that processes the form?

Just search for captcha tutorials. Adding it to the form is very easy.
Alternatively you could try adding an invisible input field, not for bots, and if it gets filled out don't do anything. You'd use CSS for this, ex:

Add to the form:
<input type="text" name="email_2" id="email_2" value="" />

In your styles add:
input#email_2{ display:none; }

When validating the form, if email_2 has been filled out take action..Since only bots would see this field.
