Dear Experts,

I have a web page that allows visitors to complete a form and send the information to our support email address. We have been getting a lot of spam, most of which contains URL's.

What is the best way to detect the presence of "http://" in a field and silently not send the email without giving an error message? I have tried using the Instr function but I don't think I am using it correctly.

Thanks!
