There certainly are benefits, and I did use a temp sign-up storage
file myself. I was just suggesting a solution with less work since
initially everybody said they had little to no time to work on this

There are other benefits to storing sign-up data, which I also used.
Store the IP and you can limit attempts to crack the secret. Store the
date to have the link expire, etc.

I was thinking of Notify/FoxNotify, and other pmwiki based mailing recipes.

Eemeli, you already have the mechanisms in your new AuthUserProfiles
recipe proposal. Why not have an email-only option, stored in a
separate place for these purposes?

e.g. SiteAdmin.VerifiedAddresses, or whatever, which other recipes can
access. Unsubscribing can use the same mechanism as the
subscription/sign-up process.
