Good point Mits! In fact, i checked my company mail yesterday, and someone had signed up for it. I sent them a personal email, to ask them to confirm they were human, and i've had no response. It is going to be a problem, as the more users we have, the larger the server load when a newsletter gets sent out, because it has to send it to so many addresses at once.

My solution to this is to email each user manually, using the newsletter system. If they do not reply within 4 days, they get deleted. A bot cannot reply to emails, they can only digitally "click" links. It is a similar issue to the forum spambot issue, and we've got that sorted. As CCMail doesn't seem to still be in production, i doubt an AntiBOT mod will get developed for it.

The Mac style is nice, isn't it? :) The website is going to look like it too, the new Web 2.0 design, the standards i was talking about a few days ago at lunch.
