Summary0019289: Add email address typo detection to subscriber import
DescriptionImported subscriber email addresses in large accounts typically include addresses which are invalid due to typos. Examples:

gamil.com (gmail.com)
domain.om (domain.com)
domain.ccom (domain.com)
hotmal.com (hotmail.com)

These addresses slow down send speeds due to failed DNS lookups or rejected connections (user not found).

To avoid delays during sending, add automatic detection and unconfirming or blacklisting of typos during subscriber import. Existing lists of domains with typos and the likely intended (real) domain may already exist and be available for incorporation.

For usability this option could be an additional, optional, validation step, and enabled by default on the import subscriber pages.
TagsNo tags attached.

I think this is sufficiently useful and important functionality that it should be included in core. If there are significant hurdles to contributing to phpList 3 core then we can work on removing those.
