I get Spam with my contact form also using captcha.
I found this article:
Captcha Not Stopping Spam (Honeypot)
I have Captcha implemented, but it isn't stopping spam from getting through. Help!
Here is something you can try:
1. Create a new hidden input element as the first element of your form.
NAME: yourfirstname
VALUE: empty (don't put anything in the value field)
2. In your form's properties > Advanced tab > More Options > Submit Pieces > Before Submit, add the following code:
if( ff_getSubmit('yourfirstname') != '' )
The regular bots will try to fill in this element and before form submit. The code above will exit the application if this element is not empty, which would result in the submission not being stored.

I tried it, but got this message when tryind to save the form:
Sie haben keine Berechtigung zum Zugriff auf /administrator/index.php?format=html auf diesem Server = No right to access ...
Apache Server at www.filztaschen-tessin.ch Port 443
What can I do so that I do not get any Spams anymore?

when you remove anything related to the honeypot solution, does the form work?

If you had done everything as in the instructions, it shouldn't be throwing those errors as it really doesn't have to access the URL that's throwing the 443 error. So, I'm guessing you did something wrong.

There are two ways we can proceed now. One is either create a package of your form, zip it and attach here ( how to make packages ). The other one would be to send backend credentials to darko.cujic@crosstec.org and I'll take a look at it.
