Well, it's still less spam than we have on the mailing lists :D

I've tried the suggestion of using a Custom Profile Field as described here https://www.phpbb.com/kb/article/custom ... mmer-tool/
Maybe that will minimize the spam. At least we can hope so.

I read that the Q&A CAPTCHA should be also good to fight SPAM logins.

The Custom Profile Field had no effect, so now I've tried the Q&A Captcha.
We'll see how that works.

I think it's working.
We are down to 1 or 2 spam mails a day.
