as some of you may have noticed over the last few days, a new method of spam protection has been implemented on lists.php.net.
if you post to one of the lists.php.net lists (via mail or the news server at news.php.net) from a mail address that is not subscribed to the mailing list, you will receive an email with information on how to confirm that you are a real person trying to send mail to the list, and not just some drive-by spammer. once you have responded to the confirmation, your original message to the list will be let through to the list, and your email address will be stored as one that is allowed to post so that future postings from you to any of the lists.php.net lists will be passed through without requiring confirmation. note that this means it is no longer possible to post to the list using an invalid smtp sender (or using an invalid email address in the 'From' header of a post via the news server). if you encounter problems posting to the list, feel free to drop a note to the list administrators at [EMAIL PROTECTED] jim -- PHP Database Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, e-mail: [EMAIL PROTECTED] For additional commands, e-mail: [EMAIL PROTECTED] To contact the list administrators, e-mail: [EMAIL PROTECTED]
