Ban all subscribers from a domain?

We keep getting spam subscribers from a small range of consistent domains. How can I ban these domains so nobody can subscribe with those addresses?

There really isn't a way to do that.  If you move them to your Do Not Mail list that should block the same name from not signing up again, but  in my experience blocking the domain isn't possible.

 

Would turning on the double opt in option be any help?

Re: Ban all subscribers from a domain?

Hi Tony, thanks for your input. You may be right - a two-stage process might be the answer. As these are all subscribers who sign up on our site via the API there's also the possibility of writing domain blocks into the sign up handler before it gets to the Constant Contact code. I just thought there might be a way to do it withn CC itself.
