hmm, does this mod work with 1.2.14? I just did the install, but now I don't seem to be getting notified of anything at all.

OK, I sort of figured it out.

There's nothing "wrong" with the way I did it, I just expected it to work a different way than it does.

"Banning" a domain only prevents new users from registering with an email domain on the ban list. It does not prevent them from changing their email address once logged in, to an email domain on the banned list.

Smarty! You're so smart. Thanks!

update: Weird. I just added the "*@hotmail.com" to the ban domains, then swithed  to "No" the setting in the Admin Permissions to disallow users from changing email to a banned address/domain.

I then logged in as a test user, and was able to change my email in my Profile to a hotmail.com one with no error message.

Could this be modified to allow any email domain _except_ for hotmail.com?

I'm one of the unlucky people who can't get any emails to Hotmail.com users. It would be nice if there was a way to not allow users to use a hotmail.com email address at all. I've already got a little message about it when they sign up, but  this would be an added security.

I'm having the same problem. No  registration emails sent to my test Hotmail account are coming through. Not even as junk.

I'm using SMTP details. No problems with Yahoo or Gmail. I have RDNS set up, but my DNS doesn't support SPF, so I can't try that option.

I just found this thread. I was having an insane time trying to figure out why Welcome emails were being received fine to my Gmail account, but never to my personal email account on my own domain(!).

I decided to give it a shot. What the heck. I filled in the SMTP info and the next test user I created for myself came instantly into my inbox! And it didn't go to the Spam folder either!

hooray beer!

Hi, this is a great plug-in.

Is it easy to have the option for "Generate random password" to be the default option? Could someone point out where in the code I could change this option so it's always selected?

Also, it seems that all of my test emails sent to new users are going straight into their Spam folders. Any ideas on how to avoid this?


Did you ever figure this out?

Did you ever figure this out? I'd like to know how you did it.
