Lately there are a lot of email coming trough from the websites using remote access to you form.
It happened to me as well. Got about 100 email in 20 min, so what i did was to create a session and if bigger then 2 (no more then 2 email per session) i redirect them to the home page.
If anybody find it usefull you are more then welcome to use it.
Is in php but can be easily converted to any language.

if you have a global include file like top.php add this to it:

Code:
//block mass email senders
// change this to you variable :: (@$_POST["sendemail"] == '1' ::
if (@$_POST["sendemail"] == '1') {
 $_SESSION['you_send_email'] = @$_SESSION['you_send_email']+1;  
}
//end of block mass email senders
then on the page with the form add this before the email execute code:

Code:
//block mass email senders
if (@$_SESSION['you_send_email'] > 2){
 $_SESSION['you_send_email'] == 2;
  header("Location: [URL="http://www.yourdomainname.tld/index.php"]http://www.yourdomainname.tld/index.php[/URL]");
 exit(); 
}
//end of block mass email senders
hope this help anybody
