Adding several banned email domains at once

Post by DigiCrime » Wed Nov 21, 2007 2:45 pm

Is it possible to add more the one email domain to the ban list? For example I have over a 100 different freebie email providers I would like to add to the list but one at a time is painfully slow.

From the title next to the email Ban window in the ACP:

"To specify more than one email address, separate them with commas. To specify a wildcard username, use * like *@hotmail.com"

You could do a list in Notepad, and paste it.

BTW, banning emails is a waste of time, like banning IPs. To stop spam, read the sticky at the top of this forum.

Does anyone has a list of spam email domains?
Such a list would be really handy...

Why? They are changing all the time, so you'd have to keep updating it.
As Steve already said, install the RAC MOD (or similar), and you don't need to maintain anything.
