Spam Mails - dalios - 2021-04-07

Hello Guys,

I Found Many Emails Like [email protected], [email protected] ... Trying To Register In My Forum
What is the Best Solution To Not Allow This Type Of Emails ?

Thanks.

Set up a captcha. There's not a lot you can do to prevent spam sign ups other than some way of stopping them being successful.

I Have a captcha but still get those mails
I think someone who make that manualy
I think i need to ban those type of mails even if someone trying to register using them

CleanTalk plugin will end all the spam. https://community.mybb.com/mods.php?action=view&pid=1008

I think the following plugin deals with temporal mail accounts:

iPatrol is overly aggressive. It blocks good registrations.


RE: Spam Mails - Omar G. - 2021-04-07

I have no proof on that but I could assure there are legit users using disposable email accounts, thus iPatrol blocking legit users won't be unexpected.

Probably so would be the case with similar plugins.

I used iPatrol for a while and quit using it because it doesn't just block bad email addresses but IP addresses too. IP address part is what is too aggressive. There is another plugin that just does email addresses, but it doesn't catch all of them. https://community.mybb.com/mods.php?action=view&pid=1239
CleanTalk is the best I've found. I get zero spam now. https://cleantalk.org/

Yes, I disable IP settings in the iPatrol plugin (and any other similar spam plugin) and discourage anyone from trying to detect users based on their IP apart from, probably, logging reasons.

If you disable the Locate users based on their IP address. setting in iPatrol I would assume it should be enough?

It's been so long since I've used it I don't remember seeing the option to disable the IP address part but yes if you can turn that off the plugin should work well.
