Emails from installation being sent in error to anonymous users

I’m noticing on my mandrill account that emails from my installation are being sent to anonymous users at a Discourse created address. Naturally these are bouncing.

I’m using v1.3.0.beta6 +185

Could we either have no email address allocated to anonymous users or have it set up so all emails out to them are suppressed.


@sam are these accounts flagged as anon in some way? Or is the email in an ignorable pattern?

Per it looks like the email addresses are generated truly randomly, which is unfortunate.

@sam we need some kind of database field that definitively marks these user accounts as anon, I do not want to ship 1.3 without that.

We have a db field, I wanted to avoid adding a db column for a feature 99% of installs do not use, which is why it’s a custom field
