have you had email verification problems?
« on: March 15, 2008, 03:13:18 PM »
In the last few months, several people who have registered for the forum have been unable to receive a verification email. The emails were correct, and nothing was in the spam folder.

Another interesting stat is that literally 10% of all accounts registered are never verified - many because emails are entered obviously wrong. Gmail is not gmale, for example. Hey, if you can't enter your own email address correctly, there ain't no way you're smart enough to make a robot :P

I also noticed quite a few of them are yahoo addresses. Perhaps they have a really bad spam filter?

Anyway, has anyone else had this problem when originally registering? Perhaps a certain email account didn't work?

Yeap, this email I just got confirms yahoo mail is worthless ;)

Actually, I didn't originally get the email because yahoo also identified his included pdf (for something else) as a virus . . .

Managed to get into the Forums (user Webbot) a few weeks ago - I re-registered under a different non Yahoo email address. You're correct - the previous ones were identified as spam on my Yahoo account and were lurking in there.
