Admin => Ban List => Add New Ban => Ban on Email Address => Ban on Email Address, *@hotmail.com

Than you can add additional ban triggers for other free email services you want to ban.

Restrict Email Providers on Registration :)
Thats an interesting mod. Does it bann the email address (Ie all members old and new will be banned) Or does it just restrict new mwmbers from using those addresses.
