Summary0019290: Extend 'disposable email' plugin functionality and incorporate into core
DescriptionDisposable email addresses can be considered invalid because they are not mailboxes used for receiving desired, recurring, content. Additionally such addresses are problematic because: i. they are sometimes used as spam trap addresses, ii. they are often deactivated after a certain time frame, causing bounces and iii. are very rarely checked by their users, resulting in low open and click rates. Most often, phpList administrators import such addresses unknowingly.

To increase the effectiveness of this plugin:

1. Incorporate the plugin functionality into phpList core in order to make testing and performance improvements easier
2. Update the list of domains used for matching disposable domains (seek out third party, independently updated lists)
3. Check that the domain checks are applied during all types of subscriber import, and also subscriber signup (via forms and AJAX)
4. Remove the ability to override the checks during admin subscriber import
5. Update notification messages when addresses were matched and blacklisted or discarded to clarify it was because the address was disposable
6. Move the list of banned domains to an external file which can be easily independently updated, and the location of the file can be set via config variable
TagsNo tags attached.
