new user can't register - invalid email?

Post by ali-phant on April 5th 2012, 9:17 am

A new member is trying to register on my forum but it keeps returning an "invalid email address" to her. I have changed the settings in the admin panel to "user confirm" but there's no change. I have even registered for her using my email address and then trying to change the email address once registered, but that doesn't work either, it just says "invalid email address" still.

Her email address is a Norwegian one eg ki-^^^^^@online.no and this is the only email address she has.

I have had no other problems with people trying to register, has anyone any ideas?

Many thanks,
Alison

You need two posts to send a pm, so reply to this to get your second post.

If you work it out please let me know lol. I have suggested that she creates a new email address and tries that.... just waiting to see if she does. But it may happen again as a lot of my visitors are from Norway and places out that way.

Thanks!

There appears to be the same topic for these and currently our pro admin is fixing it.
http://help.forumotion.com/t106305-registration-email-error-sorry-but-this-e-mail-address-is-invalid

Provide your forum link there and the e-mail that doesn't allow a guest to register and hopefully our admin will assist you.
