Quote from: Grudge on June 28, 2005, 05:44:38 PM...Note that the mod I intend to write will ONLY work on replies to notifications and the like. I don't intend to allow posting of new topics through the mailing list - as this can never be done in a secure way. The only way I can imagine allowing relatively secure new topic posting would be to either:1) Allow a user to select a password specifically for email notifications (i.e not their usual account password) which they send in every topic reply. This would also need to do spam protection to stop people working out this password.2) Allow replies to a weekly digest (or similar) which would start a new topic - but this idea sucks So basically, if I mod it I only intend to half mod it - I won't create a mod which I know is unsecure.
