I have a noobie question.

"- Upload Mail/CheckUser.pm in Modules and CHMOD the same as other modules there"

Done!
 
"- Apply the mod"

Hmmm, what does that mean? I don't know how to actually activate it.

Edit your "Improved_Email_On Registration_2_1_UK.mod" file :

I
'69' => "E-mail",
to
'69' => "Email",

or
II
Edit your "Languages/English/Register.lng" file :

from
'69' => "Email",
to
'69' => "E-mail",

Good luck.

Like one or two other novices I have run up against problems installing this mod.
Does it matter if Mail/CheckUser.pm is uploaded before the files are modified or not.
I modified the files first with BoardMod, found that the .pm file hadn't been uploaded so then uploaded it manually.
I now find that the mod isn't working.
I also find the term "Apply the mod" unclear. I have assumed that it means modify the necessary files using BoardMod (or possibly manually).

Uploading the .pm file is a separate action which can be done before or after applying the mod.

How to apply a mod to your board is explained in the FAQ section.

You can do this by using the programme BoardMod, or manual if you get errors by conflicting other mods.

This mod has no on/off/settings knobs, whistles or bells you need to activate.
It only improves the way email addresses are checked so it should report more detailed errors on people trying to spam your board Wink

Thanks for your reply.
I have now installed the mod and it appears to be running as I am getting much less Spam.
However, you state:
"It only improves the way email addresses are checked so it should report more detailed errors on people trying to spam your board  ".

In what way does it report? Where does it report to?
Up to now I haven't received a report of any kind.

I could be wrong, but I think you want:

if ($boardurl =~ /https?\:\/\/(.*?)\//){ $Mail::CheckUser::Helo_Domain = $1; }

The change is the 's?' on "http". In this way, if the board is being served over SSL you still set the domain name, and avoid getting your server blacklisted by the good folks of cbl.abuseat.org.  Shocked

Which only applies if your host allows you to run the complete forum in SSL mode.... most hosts do not support it though. Makes no sense running a complete forum in https//

And this function does not do any RBL checking, it just checks if the helo domain is valid (and the server running it alive), no RBL stuff in it.
