Most exposed email addresses on the web get spammed.  You don't need to be hacked into for that to happen.  When you hire them, have your web person remove that email form if you're not using it for anything.

That's why you're hiring a web person.  I wouldn't put the email address where someone could find it.  Can you post the link to the page so we can see it?  Maybe then we can tell you where to find it.

That page is no longer part of your main web site.  It doesn't look like you are using it anymore.  You are probably getting nothing but spam for that address (which is a phony by the way).  If that's the case, I would setup a filter in my email program to automatically delete any email from that address.  I think even when you delete that page the spam will continue to come because they are sending it directly, not thru that page.  Spammers normally 'harvest' or collect email addresses and put them in a program that sends out the emails directly, not thru your web page.

Yes, that's a standard email link you would find on a web page.  But in this case, it doesn't mean a thing because it's a phony email address.
