During the past month the number of spam email addresses has increased almost daily. In a matter of three to four days there has been well over 300 emails sent.

I dont have the skills to stop this type of email spam.

What is the solution.

Hi @neilchopp and welcome to trac.

Trac is used for the development of the WordPress software rather than for assistance with individual sites. You can find people better able to help you in the support forums.

A quick search shows there have been a number of discussions in the past about spam registrations so you may find an existing solution there. Otherwise, feel free to create a new post yourself.

I'm going to close this ticket off as invalid which in this case, is tracs unfriendly term to indicate I've referred you to support where you'll find people better suited to help.

Good luck.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
