    keep receiving [email protected] emails, wtf???

    I submited my forum to google a few weeks back, and now I am getting one of these emails every other day. They all have a different number string in the subject so I'm not sure if they are registering as new members all the time or what. I have email verification turned on so they are just replying to the email that gets sent out by my site. Does anyone know what is going on here and why I am getting all these emails?

    I think either google bot was trying to register or someone else was trying to register using their email address.... and since your forum requires activation, the auto responder responded to the activation emails. Just turn on image verification and google bot will not be able to register, but if someone else is trying to register using their address, then you may want to add that specific email to the banned email list for a bit...
