    I'll have to vote no on this. Perhaps I'd vote yes only if you could configure which email domains you'd like to reject scheduled meetings from, but no - a blanket ban on gmail.com addresses is not a viable solution for everyone. Now what IS a needed feature? Bounce notifications. If the email isn't valid, then it shouldn't go onto a calendar.

    I updated this to clarify that I'd like the "option" to block free email domain providers or domains I choose. But it's generally going to be all the free email domain providers like Gmail, Yahoo, ZohoMail, Hotmail, AOL, Mailinator and a bunch of other ones.

    Fair enough, yes, as long as the domains to be blocked could be configured. I know everyone's business and leads are different, but a good number of our closed sales come from gmail addresses and the like that were booked as blind meetings originally.

    A blanket ban on gmail.Com addresses is not a possible answer for all and sundry. Now what IS a wanted characteristic? Bounce notifications for completion of video. If the e-mail is not legitimate, then it shouldn't go onto a calendar.

    I'm not saying there should be a blanket ban for everyone. I'm saying that some organizations like mine need the option. I get that most Calendly customers don't need this feature but we really do.
