Support » Plugin: Email Subscribers & Newsletters » SPAM email subscribers is back.

  • Email Subscriber plugin has been working fine for the past couple of months but tonight, when I checked our site. I noticed about new “unconfirmed” subscribers. The plugin is up to date and I know a few months ago the plugin had this same issue and you were able to fix the issue with a new update. Will you be coming out with a new update to fix this problem?

    Hi all,

    In Email Subscribers Free we have taken care of the majority of security issues.
    But still, there could be a few ways that surpass our security measures.
    To combat that, you could try out Email Subscribers Premium which had the CAPTCHA feature.
    It helps achieve 100% security.
    Hope this helps you.

    Why don’t you just uncomment the lines again, that are filtering against “*.ru” email addresses? Also include a filter against cyrilic characters in name and many users of your free plugin would be happy again. A lot of them (me too) can’t afford the pro version (it is just a small sports club with very limited budget), unfortunately.


    Many thanks!

    Hi @olivermerk

    We have implemented the domain filtering in the Email Subscribers 4.0, however, it is still under testing and will be released soon.

    Great News! Thanks for your effort.

    Hi @olivermerk and @asnailslife

    I would like to update you that we have released Email Subscribers 4.0 which will enable you to block emails from a specific domain and so will help you filtering spam emails.

    Please have a recheck after updating the plugin and let me know your views.
