One of our bona fide members has a googlemail address, and can't update his profile to reflect this because we've blanket banned those addresses after the great bot influx that was driving the SWAT team to distraction.

Unfortunately the software doesn't have the option of unbanning a specifc address while keeping a default ban on addresses of that type. Well, that would be a bit much to hope for.

So. Looking for suggestions. Do we unban googlemail addresses on the grounds that proper people use them (I've got one myself)?

I'm shuddering at the thought of all the spambots already.

There are ways round this.

Domain registration, with a forward for gmail addresses might be one way to resolve the issue with specific applicants whom we know and trust. It shouldn't COST them anything and nothing from their viewpoint really changes, other than that they have a 'spare' email address, which doesn't contain the risk for this forum.

I have exactly that sort of domain forwarding, as my previous email address tends to be assumed to be spam because it's a lot of apparently nonsensical letters...

That's probably the best bet, Pagan. I shall suggest such a solution to our member, ta.

I'm recalling that email addresses with forwarders were available from this site's url.

If that's no longer the case I could set up a forwarder from nuttycyclist.co.uk for the member.

It's all right, nutty, ta. It's about to be sorted, as soon as I find out what said member would like in front of the @.
