Registration E-mail issues
« on: February 26, 2013, 07:17:41 PM »
Hey guys,

I am not sure who I am suppose to mention this to but, when I went to register yesterday, I tried putting in my hotmail address and I never received the confirmation e-mail. I tried resending it several times and I never received it.  I even tried the forgot password feature and it said I never confirmed my e-mail, after I inserted that same e-mail address.  I checked my spam folders several times and everything.

Forwhatever reason though, when I tried registering today using my gmail account, I received the e-mail instantly. Not sure why but gmail worked where hotmail failed.

I will look into why hotmail is blocking the mails.  At worst I would have expected it to end up in the spam folder.

For anyone else who runs into this: you can always use the contact form to get your account activated.

Don't know how this might work, but could it have anything to do with our enormous bogus member list?

I also couldn't get a confirmation email at my hotmail address, tried about 10+ times to resend it, and even emptied my blocked spam addresses. Finally had to change my address to an alternate email and got in.

Yea hotmail appears to be blocking a lot of them.

Yes, it you use hotmail, you should contact them as it's on their end.
