User registration email check plugin?


  • Hi everyone!!
    So, I am new to NodeBB and I noticed that when choosing to require new users to specify an email address when registering, no checks are performed regarding the email address. So it does not ensure the email address is real or that it the your own. Even when entering a real address, no emails are sent.
    So my question is, is there a plugin for this and if not, how would I be able to fix it?

    they have to confirm their email addresses to be able to post on the forum or get any notification via email. The only email they should get is a "verification email".

    If you are worried about fake domains etc. you can use this:

  • Hi @baris , I have not tested the situation yet... but there might be a problem with the confirmation logic...

    do new users have to confirm their email addresses in 24 hours? I think the link in the email does not work after a certain time, and users cannot get another confirmation email since their email addresses are not confirmed. Is my observation correct?

    Every now and then, a user (who registered some time ago but did not confirm their email addresses) reaches us via email saying that they cannot get a confirmation email, and the link in the first email does not work...

    But, I can send another confirmation email to them via ACP?


  • @crazycells Hey, thanks for replying. I added a valid email address but I did not receive any confirmation email.

    Thanks for reporting, this might be a regression
