iPage ==> Connecting hosting and domain ?

Got a question, hope someone can answer... iPage ==> Connecting hosting and domain ? Thanks for any response. My 2nd question... Hello,.

I have been having a major problem with email addresses. It seems like many of my customers either accidentally or on purpose type an invalid email address during registration. This results in a huge load of email notifications to bounce back and no way to contact those customers..

Is there a way to validate email addresses during registration?.

Any suggestions would be very much appreciated..

Good question... I dunno what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I find an decent answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably can answer it..

Thanx for the reply, I checked that and that option is on, but still doesn't work....

Any ideas?..

Comment #2

Other ideas for catching bogus email addresses?.

Come up with a real, working solution and the world will beat a path to your door...

Comment #3

Well, the email that is sent to verify your email adress before you are allowed to post in this forum would be a good idea to be implemented..

Would that be too difficult?..

Comment #4

Is there a way to configure osCommerce to send an email during the registration process containing a link that the customer would have to click on it before his registration is completed?.

That would eliminated accidental or on purpose invalid email address..

Any suggestions?..

Comment #5

Shouldn't be too hard..

Who am I kidding?! I am still working on my store after a solid month..

But I agree it would be a nice option and would help eliminate bogus accounts..

Perusing other posts I did find this contribution:.

Yes, in Admin under email options there's an option: Verify e-mail address through a DNS server...
