    I think this is exactly what I was about to have someone code for my site. Will have to test this soon.

    I was having the same thought @AzzidReign. @xfrocks had coded a similar addon (bd mail) but it was using third party solutions to detect bounced e-mails. Thanks @SheepCow this is just great.

    Could you please share which header texts or codes lead to defining a bounce message?

    Through the usergroup setting we can block users from participating and show them a notice to fix their account. But what seems to be missing is a way to guide users trough that process and to let them reactivate their account. Please consider to add such functionality. It will be most useful and safe admins & staff from a mass of support requests.

    We have built something similar for vbulletin. Here are the adminCP screenshots for your inspiration:

    This seems like a great add-on but i think i am going to wait until the bug you have mentioned has been fixed before instilling it :) keep up the good work

    @SheepCow one suggestion, could you maybe phrase the conversation text so that the user receives the messages in their selected language?

    Also, would it be possible to add the user into "awaiting e-mail confirmation" mode?

    I don't think thats a good idea as that has undesired / unexpected effects. XenForo considers members awaiting email confirmation not as members and therefore all kinds of permissions are limited. It will also lower your member count significantly and prevent your members from fixing up their account.

    You do not want to mix failed registrations that you should best delete with valuable members who you want to keep. I have made that mistake and I would advise against it.
    Members awaiting email validation need to be sent a few reminders and if no validation occurs, then the accounts should be deleted. They should not get much access to the site.
    Members with bouncing email should not get any reminders or email at all. They should get access to the site and receive on site messages / instructions about how to fix up their account.
    Its two very different situations.

    A function that would be very nice to have is reactivation of accounts by social networks like Facebook Authentication. This could provide a one click reactivation of deactivated accounts. It could use the XenForo Facebook connect and this addon:

    I've added that info to the FAQ tab.

    Hopefully the conversation sent to the user is more obvious now, remember you can always customise it to say what ever you like.

    I've left this out for now, could add it as an option - however, they won't really be awaiting confirmation since there isn't a valid email address to confirm.

    Can you explain how you could use something like this to "correct" your whole userbase?

    Example: one of my communities has 30,000 members. Many of them will be from years ago and will have dead emails. If I install this right now though, how will I detect who these members are? Meaning xenforo would have probably already stopped sending them notification emails etc long ago, right?

    Currently the way I handle it by putting the user into moderation (awaiting e-mail confirmation). The user can't see the content until they have a valid - confirmed e-mail account. I created notes where I encourage the user to change their e-mail adress... There is also an addon which originally xfrocks created and waindigo took over, First Click Free by Waindigo, which hides all content until the user account has a valid - confirmed e-mail adress.

    Looks brilliant, thanks!
    I already have 'Bounced Email Address' within /admin.php?options/list/emailOptions set to bounces@domain.com, so I should just need to point the add-on to the logon credentials for bounces@domain.com and I'm good to go.
    Does this add-on also deleted the email when it download/retrieves it via POP3, or does it leave it in the inbox? Or even better, it moves it to an 'actioned'/'archived' folder after downloading?

    Short answer, it won't. Longer answer, XenForo will still be sending them emails so it'll probably notice them anyway.

    Currently it'll just delete the bounces.

    As yes, I've botched the installer for upgrades, I'll post an update shortly.

    My forum times out when I try upgrading... Does it have anything to do with the addon?

    Hmm, the add-on doesn't use any of the deferred stuff - that's probably during template rebuild?

    yavuz Well-Known Member

    Yes, I made a clean install but it times out on every attempt. I checked the addon it seems to be installed but when I go over the options section the mail settings field is not visible and phrases show up messed up.

    In future it will support 3rd party services like Mandrill?
    I know that there's "[bd] mails" but "[FreddysHouse] Bounced Email" is going to have more options!
