REGISTRATION EMAILS
« on: May 26, 2014, 09:21:10 PM »
Microsoft and AOL email addresses block our abiliy to send activation emails. Because of this, I have blocked registrations from hotmail, AOL, outlook & msn. I also have a strict filter on emails to combat spam.

If you recommend this site to your friends, let them know they should register with GMAIL or YAHOO addresses.

I have a question.

Since we have to sign up with either Google or Yahoo! Mail to ensure that we get the activation email and link, couldn't we change our e-mail address to a Microsoft or a AOL one, AFTER the activation e-mail link confirms our account?

Someone reported to me, that this issue isn't there anymore. Can someone test to verify and maybe close this thread? :P
