    I've been noticing a sudden rise in the spammers using email IDs like: hkf.g.hfhld.fe.ri.rt@gmail.com . Is there any way I can ban such users? Say all the email registrations that have more than 2 'dots' before the @ sign?

    There's a chance this might work but I would recommend thoroughly testing it first! Add these to your Banned E-mails list:


    And so on...

    I believe *.*.*@* would work.

    For 3 or more dots? this:
    *.*.*.*@* ?

    I think it's good idea to only block 3 or more dots on email but not 2 and below.

    Does that ban email Ids with >2 dots or with 2 dots as well?

    That would be 2+ - you can see the pattern based on what you want to block.
