We have had a few incidences of unwanted messages (spam) on the list
today. To rectify this problem I have changed the list configuration
so that when you send a message you will be asked to confirm that you
did send the message. This should eliminate the automatically
generated spam we are receiving. The procedure is as follows -
When the "Confirm" option is enabled, the sender is required to
confirm the posting. When LISTSERV receives mail for the list, it
sends an email to the sender requesting a confirmation. The
confirmation can be accomplished by replying to the confirmation with
another email containing the text "OK" (the subject of the
confirmation email contains a validation "cookie") or by clicking on
the confirmation URL provided in the email.
I'll be monitoring the arrangement to ensure it works. Apologies for
the inconvenience - hopefully it will only be minor.
