What is domain blocking?

Domain blocking allows you to block logins, registrations and votes for email address’ from a specific domain. For example typing outlook.com will block any user from registering, logging in and voting using an email coming from the outlook.com.

This allows you to block emails that you believe to be fraudulent or coming from temporary email services. Alternatively, you could add a person’s full email address to block just a specific individual.

By default Launchpad6 blocks around 3500 temporary email service domains such as mailinator.com
