MX check when a user register - zikoss - 2020-12-18

Hello,

I am using MyBB 1.8.22, many peoples are registring to my forum using an email address that does not have a MX DNS record.
I spend my time to disallow Email Address using banning tool, and removing every day accounts awaiting for registration.

Is there a plugin to check the MX during registration?
Or is there a way to auto delete awaiting registration accounts after a number of days?

Thanks for your help.

Thats a default feature of MyBB to "Prune unactivated users".
ACP > Configuration > Settings > User Pruning

You can disallow registration with certain email domains
ACP > Configuration > Banning > Disallowed Email Addresses

You can also control registration detecting usage of disposable e-mail ids. Few plugins can do that.
I have coded one plugin that has this feature: iPatrol, but keep in mind that the detection process completely relies on third party APIs and may not be accurate always.

Thank you,

What is the behavior of User Pruning when "Prune user by post count?" + "Prune unactivated users?" are "On" ?

Does it prune "user by post count" AND "unactivated users" ?

Or

Does it prune "user by post count" OR "unactivated users" ?
