    Default What about

    Having a yes/no (or bit depending on what db your using) field in your database to say whether the account id active or not. When a user creates their account it is set to No/False by default.<BR><BR>In your confirmation email just include a link in your .Body element. With the use ID passed as a querystring param Eg;<BR><BR>objMail.Body "&#060;a" & intID & "&#062;Click here to activate your account&#060;/a&#062;"<BR><BR>Confirm.asp would then get the user ID and update the relevant record to set the activated field to Yes/True.<BR><BR>Matt
