Not received confirmation of login details yet - have checked spam
Posted by: Ruth ()

I have read through the messages on this part of the forum but unless I'm being dense (which is possible!) I have been unable to find one that answers my question.

Earlier today I tried to register, with a username and a password. The message came up that I would receive an email to confirm my registration. That was several hours ago now but despite checking my spam / junk folders and my inbox regularly I haven't received anything yet.

I was really hoping to use the forums so please can you help?

The confirmation mails are sent out instantly so, unless there is a glitch in the mail system of this server or that of your ISP, you should have the mail within seconds. Glitches do occur, but they are extremely rare. Most ISPs enforce quotas, so another reason for this to happen could be that your mailbox is full.

Checking your spam box is the right thing to do, but you already did that. Assuming that your mailbox isn't full either, the only logical conclusion I can draw from all this is that you made a typo in your e-mail address while registering.

If you supect that, you can try re-registering. If you had indeed made a typo the first time and don't make the same typo the second time, the system will accept your registration and send you a new confirmation mail. If on the other hand there was no typo to begin with, the second time you try to register with the same e-mail address the system will refuse it, telling you that it's already registered. At that point you'll know for sure that something is wrong somewhere and it's outside your control. If it comes to that, post here stating your e-mail address (use the form "user AT domain DOT tld" rather than user@domain.tld to avoid getting spammed) so I can look into the problem.

There was no trace of you in the system; none whatsoever. I now registered you with the username and e-mail address in the parent. I checked and verified that the confirmation mail was sent and was correctly received by 74.220.207.108. So you should have it. Of course you will need to recover your password once your account has been activated.

Hi, I have been having major problems with registering.

First i didnt get a confirmation email, when i signed up using hotmail

So then i tried using gmail and i got the confirmation, but now it says a moderator has to approve the account, and i haven't heard anything back. I wonder if i am just being too impatient? How long does it take usually?

My username is taylor1

Thanks!

hotmail is notorious for (a) its overloaded incoming servers and (b) its over-zealous spam filters.

It's a manual process, so it can take anything between a few minutes and a couple of days. Your username is not among those awaiting approval right now though, so I assume you have already been approved.

I attempted to sign up using:

bdsam@prodigy.net

When I try to re-register it will not allow because it states that email is in use. Can you help?
