looking for solutions to Contact Form spam

Even with the captcha in place, I am still getting spam. So, there's two questions I have;

a) Is there a way to get the email that is sent to me to show the IP address of the sender so that  I can add them to our server block list?

b) Most of the spam has <a href> links. Is there a way to scrub the form of links, or, allow the submission to fail if it contains URLs (send the submitter back to start)?

Other ideas? Thanks.

Re: looking for solutions to Contact Form spam

I can tell you an idea I came up with, that solved the problem for me.  I put TWO captchas in the form, one right after the other.  So far no-one has complained, and the bots don't seem to know how to handle it.  Haven't gotten spam since.  :-)
