Bounce backs from new user registrations
« on: July 12, 2018, 13:44:00 pm »
I have a site that is getting a lot of bounce back messages do to users being setup with out legit email addresses. How can you eliminate or reduce this?

Using Joomla 3.8.10
Virtuemart 3.2.14

This is a regular problem for Joomla users where the site allows user registration. If you don't need registration then turn it off in Joomla user manager options, but if you do allow/require registration then there are ways to reduce bot registrations, such as setting up reCaptcha. For more tips see https://forum.joomla.org/viewtopic.php?f=714&t=963199

That might help, I never got my remote keyboard exploder plugin to work.  It's rare that you can remove spam registrations completely if you allow registration. Currently spammers are exploiting com_contact on Joomla sites to send out spammy contact emails which bounce back.  All in a day's work.
