ByDesignWebSight's newest module for E-Mail Management and DotNetNuke Portals.
Email Validator for DNN sits in your portal and automatically scans your registered user list for invalid E-Mail accounts. When a user that has a old and inactive E-Mail still assigned to their registration, logs on—they are prompted to change their E-Mail Address.
Why is this a good thing?
Well, if you haven't yet decided (and we really don't know why you haven't) to use Email Manager for your email newsletters to your user community—this helps prevent bounces and invalid emails being sent from your portal. Also, if the user does not change their email address to a valid email address, if they ever forget their password, they can't get it unless they have a valid email account.
So you are actually providing a valued service to your membership by gently reminding them that their email address need to be updated.
How do we do this?
Simply put, we validate based upon the email address's domain, their MX (mail exchange) record, and then form a communication with the mail server to validate the email address. If it fails, the error is recorded automatically.
All this processing happens in the background, and won't slow down your portal—your users won't know the difference!
