Well, I'm still terminally confused by the phpBB visual confirmation script...................soooooooooooo I decided to put all registrations on adm approval instead. #rolleyes

This is going to be a PITA for me, because I'll have to check the main account daily and it gets spammed to hell and back......to the tune of about 700 emails a day!! So I'll have to check it often.....but the bottom line is that NO ONE can register without ME personally okaying their registration! #wink

So take THAT you (*&(*&@*(&@&#'N bots~ !!! #mrgreen #cool

I got the same email, Maha. I guess this makes you my nephew. #mrgreen

I guess it sends it to all the admins. No big deal.

Well being that this is the only notice I've seen, I'm thinking that this one a "live one" that registers and goes active to make a post....I think the bot bots..........so to speak must read that it's not a user based registration and just don't do it? #confused

since you know the "from" address of the registration notifications, you can probably set up a filter to send them all to a special directory.


another thing you could do is get yourself a GMAIL account, and use that for the forum notifications. In addition, forward ALL the emails coming to your old account to the gmail account. they give LOTS of storage space, and their spam filter catches ~95% of the spams.
very handy!


I can help you set this up if you want.

Okay..............who just clicked on the link when they got a new user account notification????? #rolleyes #look #mrgreen

bestpills41 was the username and it was active when I checked out the name........it HAD to be activated by one of the adms!!

When you get a notice, you still have to look up the username FIRST to make sure they're a real person............then click on the link, or just activate them from the adm panel.

Thanks!

Yeah, I have gotten probably 6 or 8 and only one has been one I have had to look up. The rest were you typical spam name so I just deleted them.
