Spammers often seem to use temporary email services where they can get a quick email address without going through the entire sign-up process.

Does anyone know of a solid list of all such email domains so that we can cut&paste them into the banned list?

UBB.threads has several built in tools to help you out.

Your first question:
1a) Have you tried the built in Stop Forum Spam tool? Report that user and not only does their email address get reported, but also their IP address. If the person is using multiple different email addresses, the IP protection will catch them. But if they are using a VPN or a public/rotating IP address, such as their cellphone, then they will be a bit difficult to catch.

1b) Have you tried Google's ReCaptia? It helps to stop automated registrations -- or to slow down mass manual registrations from different IP addresses but from the same browser session. CAPTCHA helps prevent spammers and bots from registering or posting.

Set it up here:
Control Panel > General > CAPTCHA Settings
Enable it for new registrations here:
Control Panel > Registration > CAPTCHA Verification

Your second question:

This is the first result when searching Google for "spammer email domains"

edit: that list is from 2009. You'll need to constantly update your list if you want to constantly block by email address domains. See solution 1, re: Stop Forum Spam. SFS Does that job for you. And its already built in to UBB.threads.

+1 on Stop Forum Spam, I've worked hard updating this feature within UBB.threads over the years, they have a massive online database that is checked during registration time as well as on each login; it works great against bots and mallitious users, unless said users ISP is dynamic (most broadband providers are static) or they're using a VPN.

I'd also advise using one of UBB.threads built in CAPTCHA systems (preferably Google's RECaptcha feature that Isaac added in v7.6.1).

As for lists of freemail providers, its out of scope for forum support; we don't manage any such lists, and can only provide you links from search engine results.
