How to deal w/ things like SpamArrest...

Post by dmolavi »

I've noticed a lot of users emailing me complaining that they haven't received their confirmation email. Further investigation shows that they use services like "SpamArrest" ( ) which use a challenge/response method to verify the sender. The problem is, that I've got the "from:" header in my emailer set to a dummy account which results in a bounced challenge message from the SpamArrest service.

what's the best way around this? altering the registration page to include a notice that they should add a certain email address to their whitelist?
