What validation code? I've just sent a mail and didn't get anything like that.

It a security feature and you only need to enter it when you are not on a PlusNet IP I believe.

Its to stop email spamming using webmail (i.e. via automated spambots) which is becomming more common.

Generally they aren't too bad - but you do get ones where the image is difficult to read even for a human, and they are a pain as when filling in forms you find the validation fails a couple of times because you can't read what you're supposed to type!

OK cheers. Still annoying though!
