    since a couple of days I receive a lot of registrations on my blog. All "users" have a polish e-mail-address. Juster after the E-Mail of the registration I receive a second mail with following content - does anybody can help and now what this is about:

    Hi. This is the qmail-send program at skoll.ispgateway.de.
    I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses.
    This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.

    Looks like spam bots registering with fake email addresses. Go to Settings -> General and uncheck "Anyone can register".

    You, or anyone with admin status, can still register new users on the site.
