    Is there anyway to block certain emails from Marketo forms?

      Hi,

      I'm a B2B company, so we don't want any gmail or yahoo accounts signing up for our newsletters. Is there any way to block these people by emails in the forms?

      Thanks.

          Hi Colleen,
          you could take a look at javascript to do this. Just take a short look at this discussion from a few days ago: https://community.marketo.com/MarketoDiscussionDetail?id=90650000000Ppy4AAC

          This part that blocks mail domains which are not wanted: 
          var invalidDomains = 
               [
               "hotmail.com",
               "yahoo.com",
               "aol.com",
               "gmail.com",
               "msn.com",
               "comcast.net",
               ];

               But, and this is just my opinion and experience, if people don't want to give their real email address they find a way (a lot of trashmail offerings exist...) so I prefer to build up data management campaigns which prevent your database to be flooded with this kind of information afterwards.

               Hope that helps.

            I'm also a B2B marketer. While I understand wanting that corporate email domain, first entry is often with a personal one. As an alternative, you could prompt them with some kind of pop-up or conditional field in progressive profiling and ask them for their corporate email when you identify someone who's given you a personal email address. You could also mark those as a lower priority and shuttle them to SDRs to follow up on and see if they can get them to give you a corporate email over the phone. My two cents.
