Help: spammers flooding my autoresponder.
- Join Date
- June 29th, 2011
I've come here looking for a bit of help or advice regarding a dilemma that I am currently having for my website.
I host an auto-responder that doesn't require a double opt-in. Anybody can come and create an account and they will start receiving our series of emails.
The problem is that I am being attacked by a persistent group of hackers/spammers that are installing bogus accounts and using proxies to do their work.
Although I've filtered all their IP addresses and eliminated the bogus email accounts, they still come at me every day! I've thought about using a CAPTCHA, but that will only slow them down, it won't stop them, so my question is;
Is there some way that I can stop this attack, other than using a double opt-in???
I thank you for your help and look forward to your input.

It would be extremely rare for a legitimate affiliate marketer to use anything OTHER than a double opt-in autoresponder.
I have no solution for you other than changing to a double opt-in setup -- and that may not even help.
With all the spammers out there and all the potential for you being accused of spamming and getting your operation shut down -- why would you even want to avoid a double opt-in autoresponder?
NOTE -- I am not saying this to accuse you of being a spammer or anything like that, just stating the obvious question others may have as to why you would NOT use double opt-in.
Again, I have no helpful suggestions to resolve your issue, sorry.
