Is there a possibility to reduce the spam registrations?

Thank you very much!

Hi,

there are two easy ways to do this:

1. Use a double-opt-in process for the registration (instead of single-opt-in). This will filter out illegal e-mail addresses.

2. Frequently import the "Mogelmail list" (www.mogelmail.de) as blacklist. This way, you filter out all temporary ("10-Minute") e-mail addresses.
Remember to place a %@ bevore each domain in the import file.

Best Regards
Markus

We already use the double opt-in process.

The spam submissions seem made ​​by robots, like this ones:

first name / last name / creation date / e-mail
Tnxrqjcp / Tnxrqjcp / 2014-04-15 07:52:16.0 / xriyiwgn@yzfrwfbu.com
Zoe / FsQDbbOUCaeDCjwqZ / 2014-04-14 06:08:11.0 / lifestile@msn.com
dirtbill / YGvnorZCMmvXHxTZ / 2014-04-13 04:47:51.0 / thebest@hotmail.com

This are most normal domains.

They will be deleted after three days, if no one clicks on the registration link.

But the question is whether you can make a lock, for example, captcha code, to prevent the signing up.

Hi sr-ska,

I did some testing, and yes, your problem can be solved.

Our DOI registration process consist of 3 steps (3 forms):

Step 1:
- Field definitions (i.e. mailing list etc.)
- User data entry (name, email etc.)
- Call Step 2

Step 2:
- Create user entry
- Send DOI E-Mail

Step 3:
- User presses link in DOI E-Mail
- Activate user
- Show Welcome Form


You can easily create an external User data entry form (outside OpenEMM) that includes a Captcha as well. Make sure you include the following hidden fields in your form:

Field Value
angCI 1
agnSUBSCRIBE 1
agnMAILINGLIST ** enter your mailing list no. here **

This external form just has to call your Step 2 form – that’s it.

I tried it out using the build-in form manager of Serif WebPlus to create the external form and my registration worked perfect.

Best Regards
Markus
