I have a site on geocities.com its http://www.geocities.com/whatlikesit12345 . i have a forum on it so people can e-mail me and someone is using it 2 often and they are spamming me with it. I would like a script that checks the e-mail address to see if it is valid and to check if they entered one in the box for an e-mail address

I don't think that you can do something like that on GeoCities...?

I'm pretty sure that GeoCities still supports JavaScript. :wink:

I'm confused. Did you mean to say you have a "form" on it? (because that's all that's there)

Personally, I think you're the victim of a spambot. Some script kiddy is probably using your form from an external site to spam you and probably a bunch of others via your form. I'd get rid of it and find a better solution. Unfortunately, there aren't a lot of better solutions at geo

well it all relates to posting at ozzu. it would be pure luck if they just happened to say that i post at ozzu a lot. That was the first time i gave out that link so its not someone here.

//they stopped sending me the e-mails.

i am glad they did., thanks for the link geeket(sp) that is wat i was looking for

On a related note, its possible to contact an SMTP service and verify a mailbox.
