The webmaster@ convention is simply a device where people might be contactable through a generic email address. It has nothing to do with using or not using email on a domain. My experience is that it was more widely used a few years ago than these days because it was thought to be a method to contact domain owners. I the past I would set up webmaster@, ...

You could use an email confirmation link with a 15+ minute delay on register. May deter some users, but would prevent some throw away email services.

I think the more you require in an account, the more difficult it is for one to reproduce it. By that, I mean you may want to require one's email address AND text messaging number and ask the user to confirm both pieces of information. For the texting option, an easy way is to send a message less than 140 characters to a special MMS email address. Usually ...

Been dealing with this problem since 2001. No good way. Only option is to use Oauth 2.0 external authentications from Google/facebook/paypal and trust them to weed out duplicates.

Accounts Are Never Released According to Google, they do not release them. For a limted time (around a month), you can restore your deleted account: But if it was a long time ago, unfortunately you cannot. Moreover, Google does not allow the re-use (re-registration) of long time deleted accounts either: I know, I have lost an account this ...

A new account, property or view will not have any historical data. It starts fresh and clean. The only way to keep historical data is to maintain the original account. Nevertheless, you can export your analytics data into another platform and that way you can have previous and recent data altogether. You can also contact Google in order to try to recover ...

One server needs to be configured to receive the emails for your domain. It sounds like you are choosing Google for this. To make this happen you need to change your DNS MX records to the values that Google gives you when you sign up for their system. You need to then configure it so multiple servers can send mail on behalf of your domain. ...

You need a "transactional" mail service that is meant for one-to-one communication with users. You would then use it more like a a bulk mail service, but with customization of each message. I use Amazon SES for this purpose. The API for using it is SMTP. You can customize each message as much as you want. The mail gets sets from Amazon's servers and ...

According to the reply, simply follow the following steps to get your profile image while sending emails: Create a Google+ file with the address you wish to have a profile image (yes, you may create an account with yourname@yourdomain.com). Enjoy the joy sending emails/newsletters. :)

No. You do not need at webmaster@ e-mail account. The ONLY e-mail address you need to have related to any domain is a contact e-mail address, and it can be completely different than the domain that is registered. postmaster@, webmaster@, administrator@, info@, etc... ... these are all legacy standards that were there as a uniform, convenient method to reach ...

Are you moving from a hosted server at 1and1 to a virtual server at 1and1? Then you should get in contact with the support team of 1and1. Chances are that they can minimize the problems by moving everything for you. Otherwise split the move into (at least) two steps by separating the website-moving from the email-account-moving. Even with shared accounts ...

Make the change off hours. Sunday morning (a.k.a midnight) is typically the best time to do it as that is when there is usually the fewest users using the system. It's also when you will receive the fewest emails. Announce your downtime. Naturally downtime is bad but when you tell your users to expect it, it usually isn't a problem. An email to user and/or a ...
