Block Email Address or IP

We have had a malicious person submitting the same generic solicitation through our cForm every day. We've tried to contact them explaining that we are not interested in their business but the emails keep coming. I looked up the IP address and the solicitations are coming from Vietnam (we are based in USA). I tried blocking the IP through the .htaccess file but that is a short-term fix because it's difficult to cover all of the IP ranges when the malicious users' IP keeps changing.

Is there a way to block a specific user's email from sending cForms? Any other suggestions are welcome.

Did you ever get a response to this question?  I have the same question…….

How do I block certain senders??  

Please let me know

Thanks

cforms doesn't do any IP based blocking, that you can do on a system level (ie. htaccess)

here are some tips on additional anti spam measures (see top quote), esp. note the honey-pot part:
