Disposable Email Addresses

(1/3) > >>

Skhilled:
These are email addresses that are temporarily used to mask your real email address. Most will last about 10 minutes to one day which is just enough for you (or spammers/hackers) to register on a website using a false email address, thus protecting your own. Don't get me wrong, they do serve a purpose such as registering on a site you are not sure about or a site that may be a tad naughty and you do not wish to give out your real email address for fear they will spam you or give out your email address to others or otherwise make it public. The downside is many sites know about these and will block them as I do.

The real problem is that spammers and hackers use them to register on legit sites to do their evil deeds. One way to guard against them is to add them to your Ban List using a wildcard like this:

*@spammail.com

This will block any adress they will try to use such as viagara@spammail.com, etc. You can easily find a list of the most common disposable addresses but searching for them using your favorite search engine. However, these services do use a lot of different email address that may be different like:

*@spammail.net
*@spammail.biz
*@spambait.com

Or use one like the following for the ones that will use .net, .biz, etc. (imo, this is best):

*@spammail.*

..you get the idea. The point to all of this? You can create a list of the email addresses and add them to your Ban List. I've named my list "!Disposable Emails".  Why? You can easily find it by going to:

Admin -> Mambers -> Ban List and clicking on the "Ban name" column. This will sort that column alphabetically...A-Z. Since characters such as !, #, etc. will come before letters or numbers it will show first making it easy to find, especially, if you have a long list of "Ban names".  :cool2:

NOTE: Before you add an email address to the list you should search your members by email address to make sure none are using any of them or they will be banned!!! You have been warned!

I have gathered a list of the most popular addresses at this time for all to add, if they choose. If you find any, you are welcome to add them to the list.  :cool2:

The List:

*@10minutemail.com
*@110mail.net

NOTE: Please keep in mind that new services are created all of the time and current services will add new email domain address all of the time. It is not possible to catch and ban all of them but this list will make your life a lot easier!

I am looking for a way to easily add the list to a database via a SQL Query so you'll be able to add them all at one shot! When I figure it out I'll post it too.  :dancebun:

Ken.:
Thanks for posting!
This is useful info for anyone who admin's a site because the spammers are getting worse every day.

Skhilled:
Actually, I've meant to do this a long time ago.  :baghead:

I had a much longer list at SMF Arcade, when I started this. But I can't find it anymore. But keep in mind that a lot of them will also use Google, Yahoo, and other popular email accounts. So there only so much you can do without auto-banning them all!  :rofl1:

There's also a list of servers that they like to use like ubiquityservers.com, you can add it to the "hostname" trigger like this:

*.ubiquityservers.com

Unfortunately, I've lost the list of servers and need to rebuild it. I'll make a separate topic when I do and both of these will be stickied for easy access.

Ken.:
This List appears to have a few more. 

Skhilled:
I knew I posted a list on a couple of sites but forgot which ones.  :rofl1: Thanks!

EDIT: Updated and alphabetized!
