It seems it would be easiest if you have a Domino Webserver running.
Create a database to house the web page referenced in the link sent to your users. No documents are stored in this database, nor are any views available to the web, it contains web pages only, the first landing page, and probably a second and third page to confirm success or failure.
Create a different database that web users do NOT have access to to contain the agent that 1) creates the email, and 2) stores a document that contains the random code that is included in the URL link sent to the user.
When the user receives the email, they click the link, the URL takes them to database 1, an agent in database 1 then runs that compares the data contained in the URL against what is stored in database 2, and performs some action to confirms that the user clicked the link.
