E-mail activation fixed

resolved

#1

Hi guys,

If you tried to create an account in the past few days and did not receive an e-mail activation link, please try to log in again and use the “resend activation e-mail” button. We’re still working the kinks out of the system.

Thanks!

Thanks for that. I was one of those who didn’t get the email verification.

Hi,

there seems to be a problem with the activation mail when I use my gmx adress. Tried it for two days now but never got the e-mail. (yes I checked blacklists and spamfilters :wink: ).

So I used my Yahoo spam-e-mail adress and it worked instantly.

Yeah, sorry to say, but I had also an issue with not receiving the confirmation mail on my “real” mail-account.


#5

Same here, I’m using my g+ account because my gmx.de adress necer received any activation emails.

I checked also my spam folder, the filters and blacklists. I’d be very happy if you could fix it.


#6

There were some issues with global blacklists and GMX in the past so hotmail was blocked by them too some years ago…


#7

As of an hour or so ago, we switched the forum to use the paid http://mandrill.com service for email delivery, so forum emails should be vastly more reliable now.

Can confirm. Was waiting couple of weeks and tried several times… now it works. Thanks!

I swear, these Discourse guys must be wizards or something. They have fixes for everything!!

Had also problems to register with an email from a .de domain, finally worked today with a gmail account. Glad to be here now. Thanks to @SteveAdamo and others in the kickstarter comments, who aid me to solve it.

glad to have you on-board! sorry for the delay in deleting your other accounts… i’ve tried a few times now, but to be honest, im not sure they have actually been removed… i’ll keep plugging away though… :wink:
