I just got hit by something similar. My email is a .mac domain, and apparently AP can no longer reach it for some reason and disabled my account. After 24 hours of no resolution I just switched my account over to my work email so I could restore it.I just disabled the automatic bounce handler anasdfd reset the user states for users effected in the past 24 hours.
Gotcha, I'll just chill with my work email until that's hopefully resolved. Appreciate explanation.Yeah, there are currently only two email hosting providers we have issues with right now and trying to get it resolved. The company that implements the filtering for Apple domains, ie; icloud.com, me.com, mac.com has our outbound email ip blocked as we don't own the entire class C block of ip addresses. Been waiting over a week for a reply to the last update on my open support ticket with them. The strange part is proofpoint keeps blocking, then unblocking and hasnt explained why thats happening.
Not counting the problem with gmail reporting inboxes don't exist anymore, we've only had 2 accounts transitioned to "email invalid" state. It is perhaps over reaching that it disabled your ability to post, but permissions for users in this state are not configurable. But it does force a user to update their email if it is not reachable. The concept behind a send mail server getting a bounce reply is to stop sending any more emails to the address bouncing, so that is what Xenforo does which in turn disables the account until a new email address is attached to the user.I'm confused though, why is XenForo retroactively unverifying accounts? I've never seen that before. We're starting to gear up for our transition to using it at Ars, wondering if this something I need to look out for.
