Hi,

One thing you could try, is CloudFlare:

https://www.cloudflare.com/login.html

I use it on one of my blogs to stop people from spamming the comments (was getting about 100 spam a day). It will weed out IP's that are reported as spammers. It also has a "challenge page", which is a CAPTCHA page for someone who looks dodgy, so you have to confirm who you are. All it really requires you to do, is change your nameservers over to them - and setup your custom DNS records (takes about 10-15 mins to setup)

For the emails - have you looked at setting up Setup > Users> banned_email ? I think that should do what you need.

Cheers
