Staged accounts created for bounced emails

(David Taylor) #1

I get a few spam emails sent to my forum domain, and discourse correctly bounces these with the error email_reject_bad_destination_address. However, each time this happens a staged user account is created, which I then have to manually reject.

Is this intended behaviour?

I think this is correct, @zogstrip?

Yes, it is the intended behavior. Not all bounced emails are spam unfortunately.

Ah I see - that makes sense. Thanks
