Colin --
 
The CAPTCHA image will remain on the server until the next time somebody uses the module to send an email. 
At that time the module scans the directory which contains CAPTCHA images and delete any image which is
over 5 minutes oldI. f the module is unable to delete old CAPTCHA image files, an error message will be generated
"Unable to cleanup old CAPTCHAs".
