    Would love to get some general comments from the aMember on how to handle emails that have gone bad.

    In other words, when the users registered with aMember, their emails were correctly validated. However, subsequently, the emails have been discarded by the user resulting in a hard bounce/no such mailbox reply from a server.

    The easiest approach is to simply delete the user. Okay, but maybe not the wisest approach if someone still logs in to the website.

    Create another product (inactive?) and move the member to that product?

    Add a field that records (manually or automatically) that the email is bad. Use that field to create a popup on the website that tells a user after logging in that they need to update their email address? If so, how would you go about doing that? Provide a one-time notification popup before the user is moved to an inactive product?

    Thanks for your thoughts and ideas.
