Problem with CB email validation

1 week 4 days ago #313183 by soportemarketing
Hello:

I've tried to enable email field validator in simple mode, and It seems to work in most emails, but there are some domains like @icloud.com, @mail.com, from we have real users, that are messaged as "incorrect", and I don't know why. MX verifier says that there are MX registers and that users have verified their accounts before with no problem.

What is the problem?


Thanks!

It's entirely up to the email domain if they decide to respond to the MX record request from your site or not. For this reason that validation is non-blocking. It will not stop registrations so users can just continue with registration. I honestly don't recommend using any form of validation for email address beyond "is this formatted like a valid email address" as validation beyond that isn't typically useful.

Then, We'll do that. And REGEX for email format validation and some forbidden strings to prevent from typing mistakes (hotmaii.com, gamil.com... and so on).

Thanks, krileon.

Email format validation is handled automatically if it's an Email Address fieldtype. So all you should need to do is add the forbidden words you're wanting.
