    I've been getting email generated from my contact form, e.g:

    Name: DrZoibergLo (ID: 0)
    Email: dr.zoiberg.lobster@gmail.com
    Subject: viMleMVGaFwRQI

    What is the best way to prevent/lessen these email?

    Any suggestions?

    Check the Captcha method you're using - you could switch to Q&A. Otherwise, it's quite likely that it's human generated.

    Is there a way to get the ip of the person using the contact form?

    I have a non-listed forum where staff can see all posts, but users can only see their own threads.
    And the contact list points to this.

    A guest has to register in order to contact us, if they're not willing to make that effort I am not interested in listening to what they have to say anyway, clearly it's not important enough. (Sorry, that is just my negative attitude)

    A member can post, and if it's a spam bot, I can click on the spam link, and the IP link.
