I was thinking about how a mail address is verified. Usually, you send a
mail to the provided mail address and ask for a confirmation reply.
PmWiki needs a mailbox (probably a POP one, that's simpler and generally
available) to read those confirmation mails.
(I didn't consider confirmation links. Might be a better substitute.
Certainly easier to implement.)
