    YOU can't get rid of it----there's nothing you can do except comply with Yahoo and copy the letters.

    It's a security measure by Yahoo (and others) to combat spam.

    You see this mostly on new mail accounts, (and/OR---if you've violated the sending limits) and once Yahoo has determined that you aren't a spambot, or are sending spam, they will reduce it and eventually stop it.

    In the meantime---if you want your emails sent---just do it.

    If the mail you are sending has the look of spam, then you get the character string code as a safety feature to ensure that you are a human being and not a spam bot sending out thousands of spam mailings to the world. It may be a pain but I certainly think it is a good idea and welcome any safety features for a secure account.

    No you can not get rid of it, sorry ...
