Checking a email address?

Post by Lauren11 on May 18th 2011, 12:02 am

I have a feeling a few people are joining my forum with fake email addresses just to lurk or copy stuff! Is there a away where i can check if an email address is legit or not?

ummm yah i made a video over this too.

if there are funny characteristics in the email or the email looks kinda weird then its a fake email and also if on a gmail email account if it has any sign such has !@#$%^&*() then it means its a fake account because gmail doesnt recognize !@#$%^&*() these icons

My thoughts exactly Smile

or send them a email and see if it goes through? if it dont go through then it's not a real email,
But even if it is a real email dont mean it's necessarily theirs either...lol

Yes watch out while sending a test email to a suspicious member that you're not sending an unsolicited email to a person he just took the email address from. Wink
