What is Akismet?
Akismet is a service that should be familiar to most WordPress users, Akismet is a plugin that connects with Automattic’s servers that checks if a commenter is a spam. It uses shared learning to decide whether a comment is a spammer, and then can act on it. Comment forms attract a lot of spam, and Akismet deals with the vast majority of it, meaning you are blissfully unaware.
What is this plugin?
This plugin will integrate WP Email Capture with Akismet. If you have been using WP Email Capture for a while you will notices the amount of temporary emails will steadily increase. Most of those temporary emails are not users, but are spammers instead of real users. This plugin will prevent them from even hitting your database.
Setup of this plugin takes less than 5 minutes, and you should be protected from most spam on the site.
Should you use WP Email Capture Premium, you can also control the message displayed to the spammers if Akismet says they are spammers.
So rest easy with WP Email Capture and Akismet. A year’s licence (which includes support & updates) is $20.
