hi Sandro,

You may have noticed that I have been modifying that same notification 
email to the admins, so it doesn't contain escaped text and also 
contains a working link to the ConfirmAccounts page (yay!).  Please note 
that this ConfirmAccount extension only sends out this notification when 
that (spammer) has confirmed his/her email account.  So, I am not sure 
how the spammer/bot avoids this now.

I have looked into the ConfirmAccount settings, and I don't see a 
magical variable to add so that I could include that 'confirmed' email 
address, in the email to admins.  I'll keep looking.

I hope this answers your questions, or, tries to?  -jeff
