    Hello,
    What is the best way to generate a long authentication string and email
    this so that the user can reply and verify that the email address they
    have provided is authentic, similar I guess to the way Bugzilla works?

    Should this be server side or client?

    How would one tackle an expiry limit on this - i.e. set the string a
    time limit?

    Any useful links of implementations in python are most welcomed.

    Cheers

    Norman

    Mailman does this kind of thing when you sign on to a mailing list
    (assuming the list is configured to require confirmation). Mailman is
    written in Python.
