    I have a link feature, which allows people to add their link, only by
    sending me an email.

    Spam appears sometimes, and a new link is created without my knowlege. How
    can this be done?

    If it is allowed to create the link only by sending you an email then spam
    can use this aswell?

    Is there a script on the web server you use to approve messages? Etc you
    get some link or something you get in the email that you use to approve
    the link? It could be that the spammer has
    found the approve script your web server and is able to approve his own
    links.

    Thanks. Would they do it automatically, or manually?

    Since they are doing it, bypassing your e-mail arrangement, then I would
    assume you have something set wrong on the page to allow this.
    What ever can be done manually, can be done with the proper tools.

    Who knows if it can!
    The E-Mail can destroy itself.
    Or do you have to create the link manually?

    There is still the last good thing with spam that they don't use valid
    e-mail adresses to appear to be the sender. How do you want to block spam
    with valid fake e-mail adresses?
