Description Paul Lindner 2000-08-21 17:23:16 EDT
I'm getting a bunch of bounced messages when users enter bad email
addresses.

We should do stricter checking.  Email::Valid supports this.

We need to install Net::DNS, and we need to modify the join callback and
the formmail callback to use the new Email::Valid features..
Comment 1 Paul Lindner 2000-08-21 17:24:22 EDT
Tom, can you have a crack at this.  Should be simple...
Comment 2 Tom Lancaster 2000-08-28 16:32:09 EDT
This is done as requested. The Net::DNS modules are in cvs under lib/
I've implemented the checks by adding the parameter 'mxcheck => 1' to the
Email::Valid->address
call in join/callback.apm.

Please note that I'm not sure how much of a good idea this is, because it
*significantly* slows response time when the user submits.

This is not live yet, just on webdev.
