Invalid Email Mod Wanted

I could desperately use a mod that automatically transfers a member to a specific group or bans them automatically if bounced email is received from their provided email. This will help to reduce spammers a long ways.

I get a lot of bounced email from spammers trying to enter and blocking disposable email sites is not really the answer because some like and are used by good customers of mine. A better way is to access the bounced email account and track the count by email address, then perform actions based on desired options below.

Desired Options:
We should be able to specify the group to transfer them to

If ban, we should be able to specify the banned group, period and if it is a permanent ban.

We should also specify the ban reason (displayed to the user on any login attempt).

We should also be able to PM the person automatically from a specified user id.

I don't have the expertise to program vb mods yet or I would try this one.

This one would go so far at cutting spammers, I would really like to see it a standard feature in vBulletin. vBulletin and phpBB are the two most spammed software I know and spammers seek out those sites using the software. Something like this would change that. One thing that is common on nearly all spammers is they use invalid emails.

Have you considered any of the released anti-spam/bot plugins? They should prevent the registration of such spammers/bots in the first place.
