I am looking for a strategy or samples (or even just a hint as to the best process) to create an email opt-in strategy in Zope. I am thinking that what you do is use some sort of hash or unique id creation mechanism (based on the email address, time or something else).
Based on what I am seeing -- some sort of MD5(not totally sure what that means but I understand there are Python supplied functions to generate it) hash of a combination of the email address and date/time stored and then sent to the user should guarantee that it is unique, can't be auto generated by some bot and should allow verification on http access using the hash in the url? All the potential solutions I am seeing use Python 2.5 + -- the version of Zope I am using is based on Python 2.4.4. Anybody have any ideas or have implemented something like this? _______________________________________________ Zope maillist - Zope@zope.org https://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - https://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce https://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev )
