Re: online email

That “stupid check thing” is called ReCAPTCHA and the only way to avoid it is to not use webmail but instead an email client, like Thunderbird or similar.

I'm going to respectfully disagree with that comment.  I use webmail and the only time I get a ReCaptcha is if I change users too often in a short period.

Of course the other reason is it that login attempt fails too many times in short succession.

@chromharp When you try logging in do you see any error messages after doing the ReCaptcha?
