Email domain not allowed

After migrating to Joomla 4, users cannot register.
It writes: The email domain is not allowed

I made settings in Users options as you can see in the attachment.

Please can you help

I was going to say, are you blocking any domains, but it seems not.

Can you post a screenshot of the registration form with the error message displayed?

I had the same issue just there when trying out Joomla 4. What fixed it for me was changing the firewall settings in Akeeba Admin Tools (which I see you have installed)

"Filter user registration by email" in Hardening Options and set to allow, and then make sure you have no domain filters set up in Joomla User Manager Options and also in the Hardening Options in Akeeba itself.

Hope this works for you.

thank you binarydelights, I had the same problem, changing the config of the WAF of AdminTools, that was the solution- Joep
