Topic: Valid email checker

would it be possible to have the sign up form check the email to be valid and error if not?

this is for bogus sign ups, I get 20 a day from no user at that server emails, most from gmail

Re: Valid email checker

Turn on activation by email in forum settings.

Re: Valid email checker

it is on, thats the issue, they sign up with a bogus email that doesn't exist, the mail server tries to send the verification email and the server replies to me the user at that domain is rejecting this email

The error that the other server returned was:
550-5.1.1 The email account that you tried to reach does not exist. Please try
550-5.1.1 double-checking the recipient's email address for typos or
550-5.1.1 unnecessary spaces. Learn more at
550 5.1.1 … nswer=6596 ds9si14439082obc.138 - gsmtp

I get 20 of these a day, a simple solution would be to have the sign up script check for a valid email

Re: Valid email checker

I don't known about any method for checking email by script.
You can filter rejected email in your mail client.
