You should read this article on the "[a href=\"http://www.nyphp.org/phundamentals/email_header_injection.php\" target=\"_blank\"]Email Header Injection Exploit[/a]" at www.nyphp.org. Also read the articles in the "Articles" & "Library" section at the [a href=\"http://phpsec.org/\" target=\"_blank\"]PHP Security Consortium.[/a].

Depending on how fast the spam is, you could put a delay on the time between posts.

What about using one of those 'Captcha' images? Those randomly generated images that are used to have a human enter a set of characters?
