    Hi resco

    This problem is usually resolved by embedding the form via an iFrame (load form > Setup & Embed > Embed Form > iFrame). Please try that method instead of the current one and let us know how it worked:

    Thanks.

    Hi again Ronnie

    Are the forms totally blank or are just some of the mandatory fields not filled. The reason I ask this is because it is possible to just enter a space in some types of required fields and still have the form submitted successfully. You can test what I'm saying with this form. Enter just a space in the First Name and Last Name text boxes and in the text area and try to submit the form. It will be submitted because the spaces would have been counted as characters.

    Now clone the form and replace the phoney recipient email address in the notification with your own, make a test submission with just spaces and you will see a blank submission.

    I myself have had a few instances of submissions showing up in my inbox without required fields filled and I realized that those submissions were probably from spammers who knew about this trick.

    Please keep us posted on if you continue to get lots of blank submissions.
