Anti-Spam Tools for phpBB

I've recently helped a friend set up a phpBB forum, and we're wondering if there's one really good anti-spam tool available for phpBB.

I've used and am familiar with a few of the vBulletin ones, and Akismet does a pretty good job, but I'm not sure what's available for phpBB.

Any recommendations?

  1. Whatever you have (including word verification) I'm sure you'll get loads of spurious spam fake registrations in your mail like this:

    The account owned by "Dereincance" has been deactivated or newly created,
    you should check the details of this user (if required) and handle it

    Use this link to view the user's profile:

    Use this link to activate the account:

    Thanks, The Management"

    which are impossible to get rid of!
