This is a user spam control method rather then an ISP. Although some ISP's are offering this type of thing to their users. It is a permission based email system. In otherwords, the user set's this up basically saying that "unless you have permission to send to me, I'm not accepting your email." They are then provided a link to a form. After proving they are not a spammer, the user then permits email from that address. The entire list probably received this message. I think it is Colin Thompson that has this setup. Colin, (or anyone else that uses this method of spam control) you need to add the email addresses of the various lists that you subscribe to into your trusted emails so this does not happen. Failure to do so may result in getting unsubscribed by the moderators.
