Not that I know... and I checked, no such a line. The default in Defaults.py seems to be days(3) as it should....

Yes, it fails all ways, I have tried replying, sending the confirm string and by the web form. Always the same.

Confirm string looks like this:
confirm 0e36dd2b0c2825e99b3a9fe234790f8fba059f6f

I had to test the others. To be honest I haven't earlier used this kind of "user-driven subscription" in any of the lists on that server, but have been adding the users on the web form instead.

And the result is that (what was exactly what I was afraid of ;)) that at least the one I tested worked...

What gives???

Best regards
