Just follow a similar approach to the one I mentioned in your previous question which, for some reason, you never replied back: http://www.question2answer.org/qa/59636?show=59642#a59642

I had a similar need as I installed Q2A on a website I developed on my workplace. I wanted my collegues to use their professionnal email adress (we just have one domain as to email), and it turned out to be quite simple

  1. I added a check with strpos to the class qa_filter_basic (plugins\qa-filter-basic.php) : strpos($email,'@yourdomain.ext')===false
  2. If the verification fails (the email does not belong to the specified domain), then return a message ("email_conseil_dep") saying only their professionnal mail is allowed. Message that I added - with a translation in French - to fr\qa-lang-users.php (you will have to do it in your specific folder)

This did the job for me. Hope it will be useful for someone out there

Kind regards

Hi Paul....
Many Many Thanks. This is Working. This will help to Stop spammy user registration.
It probably won't help as much as you hope it would. A lot of the spammer registrations on my site use Gmail or Yahoo addresses.
Also, instead of modifying core code (which is discouraged b/c the modifications need to be re-applied after every update), you could use my plugin Registration Blocker (https://github.com/ansgarwiechers/q2a-registration-blocker ), which has an option to whitelist allowed mail domains (and block everything else).</shameless plug>

For me it will perfectly do the job, as my use of Q2A is limited to an internal network (we have a lot a tools at the entrance of our network)
And adding my core modifications to un update will take me 3 seconds
But thanks anyway for your comment
And thanks for picking up development of the registration-tool
