there were other emails where someone had typed random letters eg. email@example.com as their subject, email address and message.
What's going on, is someone trying to hack me and if so how can I prevent it? I'm using PHP btw.

[edit reason] generalized aol email [/edit]
Does it just submit to you?
Was that email just a bounce from a bad address?
people do have a tendency to test email forms and just submit junk to see how it works and where things go.
I think this is a variation on the search for formmail.pl. Most webmasters are wise to that and use the updated version, if any. But there could still be a lot of insecure contact forms out there, so I expect to see more of the same.
