Forum rules
What to do if you have a technical problem with OJS:

1. Search the forum. You can do this from the Advanced Search Page or from our Google Custom Search, which will search the entire PKP site. If you are encountering an error, we especially recommend searching the forum for said error.

2. Check the FAQ to see if your question or error has already been resolved.

3. Post a question, but please, only after trying the above two solutions. If it's a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OJS Editorial Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

Bad user email addresses

Postby osborne » Thu Mar 16, 2006 8:33 pm

My recent user-notification resulted in mail bounces for a dozen or so users (who must have either entered incorrect addresses when they registered or have subsequently changed email addresses).

I don't want to remove these users or disable them, but I'd like to exclude them from future mailings until they provide valid addresses. As far as I can see, there is no way to do this. If that's correct, I have a suggestion for future development: add a field to the users table that flags a bad email address, exclude these addresses from mailings, and when such a user logs in ask them to provide a valid address.

(With only about a dozen bad addresses, the inconvenience is small. But I guess the number will gradually creep up.)
