    prob an easier way as you would need to ban about a billion email addresses lol

    vBulletin Options > User Banning Options


    Banned Email Addresses
    Email address ban lists: You may ban any email addresses from registering and posting. Type in the complete email address ([email protected]), or use a partial email address (as in @example.com).

    Note that partial email addresses are matched from the end of the address unless you enable "Aggressive Email Banning" below. Therefore if you ban @example.com you will ban [email protected], but if you ban @example that user will not be banned. If you enable "Aggressive Email Banning", [email protected] would be banned by @example.

    If the email address of a user attempting to register or change their email address matches any of the addresses you specify here will see a no-permission error. For example, if you have banned 'example.com' then a user attempting to use '[email protected]' will be rejected.

    Put a space between each email address or email address fragment.

        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.

          I've gotten about 30 spammers in the last month all from username@web.de, if I just enter "@web.de" on the user banning options that'll keep people from using that domain completely right? it's getting annoying so I want to make sure I'm entering it right, thanks!

            I still have people registering with "@web.de" did I enter that correctly into the user banner options? or should it just be "web.de"?

                  people are still registering with the banned addresses, some of them are in the "awaiting email confirmation" stage but shouldn't option this stop them from using that email address completely?
