    Marking mail as spam

    Is it possible to send suspicious emails sent from a form into the spam box rather than just not send them. A more aggressive approach might stop legitimate emails.

    I don't quite understand what you are asking

    You want all email sent from a form to go into the spam box? Are you talking about email sent to you or sent from your website?

    These would be coming from an email form on a website.

    There are certain patterns like random letters that are common in certain types of spam, but there a possibility that such a filter might filter legitimate emails.

    This is why I want to send them to the recipients spam box rather than just dump them.

    Thanks

    You just need to make your form spam-bot proof. Most likely you're getting hit by a spam bot that just submits it's spammy data to any form on the web. Take a look into this article: http://css-tricks.com/serious-form-security/ It would work well except for a direct targeting of your website, where you may need to look into captchas (as crappy as they are)
