I was looking through users and seen a lot of emails that were probably spam could a feature be added to only allow reconized email servers such as gmail, msn or what have you so that when a person goes to register they have to use one of those servers in order to register ?

The Registration Blocker plugin provides this feature since version 1.5.0.

Full disclosure: I am co-author and current maintainer of that plugin.

The plugin does not affect existing users. To install download and unpack the plugin to your plugins folder. To configure go to the plugin options (under Administration center -> Plugins), enter the domains in the "Email Domains" field (comma-separated) and check the "Whitelist Email Domains" checkbox. Then click "Save Options".

You need to modify the plugin's language file for that (the value of the key "email_domain_not_allowed" to be precise).
