Blocking Specific Email Domains or Email Types from Form Submissions

AUDIENCE: Administrators, Marketing Users, IT Team
OBJECTIVES: Block specific email domains or email types from form submittals

 

Act-On forms allow you to use the One-Line Text field to create custom form fields. You can use this field to create a custom email address field as well, and specify Input Validations on the content that is entered in the field.

This feature will allow you to obtain higher quality email addresses as contacts submit your Act-On forms.

To add this field, create a new, or edit an existing form, from Content > Forms. Click New, and select One-Line Text.

The contents can be restricted to 'Should be an email address', and you can also prevent Hotmail, Gmail, AOL, or Yahoo email domains from being submitted. The domains below are also restricted when you enable the Input Validation feature:
