Yahoo Hotmail image verification problem


New Email
I teach an email class to Seniors. Today in class I set up 2 Yahoo and a Hotmail account for new students and that went fine. But when using these accounts, the systems kept asking to enter an "Image Verification" again several times. The email systems worked fine, but VERY irritating to have to keep verifying.
Why is this happening, or how do you turn it off? :thanks:

The image verification is a process that is enabled on new Yahoo accounts and accounts that send a lot of email. It exists to help prevent your account from getting blocked and to try and slow down spammers and automated spam bots as they create new accounts. If you material isn't dependent on Yahoo and Hotmail accounts I'd recommend using Gmail accounts for the class. Gmail does not ever make you verify an image before you try to send an email.
