  • Email notifications based on domain?

    We're having a huge problem with aol blacklisting our IPs right now and a huge part of it has to do with AOL users on some of the large forums we host having email notifications turned on. With the large boards this, as you can imagine, generates a ton of email from our servers going to aol clients and in turn, aol seems to think we're spamming.

    Is there a way, or modification, that will let you turn on/off email notification based on email domain? Ie...a text field or something where you can enter email addresses or domains that won't send emails to those listed. That way, notifications can still be on, but we can deny it for aol members so we can repair our relationship with aol and not affect other *innocent* aol clients of ours.

    There is no function to do this. This requires modifying the code. We cannot officially support code modifications or forums running modified code, however you can try searching or asking for help with this over at www.vbulletin.org.

      Not without code modifications however, you can run on some defaults for aol users.

      Turn off instant notifications...
      Code:
      UPDATE
          user
      SET
          autosubscribe = -1
      WHERE
          email
      LIKE 
          '%aol.com'
      Turn off email on PM...
      Code:
      UPDATE
          user
      SET
          options = options - 4096
      WHERE
          (options &4096)
      To clear thread subscriptions...
      Code:
      DELETE 
          subscribethread
      FROM
          subscribethread, user
      WHERE
          subscribethread.userid = user.userid
      AND
          user.email 
      LIKE
          '%aol.com'
      To clear forum subscriptions...
      Code:
      DELETE
          subscribeforum
      FROM
          subscribeforum, user
      WHERE
          subscribeforum.userid = user.userid
      AND
          user.email 
      LIKE
          '%aol.com'
      Or, just ban aol users
      Lats...
