The advanced forms module in SiteExecutive features robust spam filtering options. When SiteExecutive detects a spam message it sends a "Spam Notification" email, the from address will be JHSPH.firstname.lastname@example.org, but it is a programmatically generated email. The email itself will have some cryptic information only, containing a table of Result IDs,IPs and Dates, very little to work from.
What is important is the email subject line which contains the name of the form that may have been spammed.
