|Summary||0023683: Can not see way to turn off "disposable email addresses" checking.|
i'd like to turn of disposable email addresses checking so i can use http://www.mail-tester.com to test the email sent out from a server running mantisbt.
i like to be able to turn off "disposable email addresses" checking temporarily in the config file but can not find a variable for this.
|Steps To Reproduce|
try to make a user account using a test email adress from http://www.mail-tester.com.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
As a workaround, remove mail-tester.com from vendor/vboctor/disposable_email_checker/data/domains.txt
That's worked perfect, thanks.
@vboctor do you think we should introduce a configuration option to disable the checking?
That info was helpful. As a paying client of sneakemail.com (snkmail.com) for over a decade, I'd like to note here that they are a reputable, for-fee service, and extremely vigilant about how their service is used. Spam and other abuse through their servers is not tolerated. I recommend removal of those domains from the list, but understand that for those who don't know the service that it's just one of a huge list of companies in this category.
Peter, is there a reason why a service like https://mailtrap.io can't be used for testing?
@Starbuck It seems that the domains you mentioned are marked as disposable on other providers and hence there made their way into my disposable library. Here is kickbox.io API results for the domains you mentioned:
@vboctor - that is correct, This is a service which provides disposable emails. My note here is that it's a reputable service, not a problem source. As an example, a pharmacist sells drugs, and so does the guy on the corner, but we shouldn't lump them all into a single list of "drug dealers" - and a gun dealer sells weapons for self-defense, which is not the same as the guy on the corner who sells guns.
So with that in mind, I encourage you to remove this one service (two domains) from that list which otherwise seems to be quite effective for its purpose.
You could suggest that I take this up with kickbox.io. But I don't use their services, I use MantisBT. And I'm here to ask the stewards of MantisBT to correct an error that's been made by an upline provider. If I have time one of these days I'll do what I can elsewhere. But I'm not in the business of evangelizing justice for services like this - I'm just trying to fix this one situation because we're in the right place to do it.
I used http://www.zerobounce.net and it is an amazing platform for online email validation that is created to ensure companies avoid email bounces. This is accomplished by identifying invalid, abuse, spam-trap, and other hard bounce email addresses. They also provide a real-time API for email verification on your platform.
