    Pure Fiction.

    In fact, this is the first time I hear this nonsense. Use common sense people, no forum admin in his right mind is ever going to BAN the entire @gmail.com and @hotmail.com domains and loose all those users out there with gmail or hotmail accounts. The problem is not the email that the person registers, but what it does once registered on a forum.

    True, there exist some email domains that I would ban if I was the admin of a forum (huh?), but Gmail or Hotmail is not one of them :P

    As for forum engines doing this automatically out of the box, there are NONE worth mentioning.

    So yes, this is a myth, hands down!

    p.s.
    Make the post more descriptive in the future if you can, title only posts are not good material for the Similar Threads script or for any reason for that matter. Thx

    I've had problems with unknown 3rd party email providers but never had problems with AOL.

    I am with Kensai on this one although it is an apparent problem with webmasters... Here is an interesting link showing numbers to back the OP up:
