  • Can I ban hotmail and yahoo e mails from registration ?

    Having run a UBB i have found a lot of trouble makers register with hotmail and yahoo addresses, is there anywhere in the admin area i can ensure that registration will only be accepted from a fixed ISP like BT, AOL, NTL etc ?

    In the Admin CP, go to Change Options and click on Banning Options. In the Email Addresses to Ban section, add "yahoo.com" and "hotmail.com".

      Does that affect current members who have already registered with one of these addresses?

        underneath that

        Allow user to keep banned email
        If you ban an email address and a user already uses that address, a problem will occur. Using this option, you can specify whether the user will have to enter a new email address in their profile when they next modify their email address, or whether the user can just keep the email address which you have banned.

        set that to NO
