New members can't register, says email invalid

Post by CARTOONISTS on September 13th 2012, 8:07 pm

I have a very eminent person wanting to join my forum

http://www.cartoonist-forum.com/

and it's sods law that the forum won't accept his email details. I also tried to register on his behalf (with his details) and was unsuccessful. Says his email is invalid. So he used another email and the result was the same so I think it's a problem with the forum.

His email ends in @snet.net

Please can someone look into this for me?

Many thanks

Leah

ps. I have since tried to register an aol.com email and it went through fine so problem is with the email extension which may be being rejected by the anti-spam filter. Can anything be done about this?

Try this...

Set the automatic activation for users.

ACP>Users and Groups>User Options>New accounts activation> Automatic>Save

Then, your eminent person can register with a fake e-mail, and then login. Worth the try.

Hi

I think you are right about the anti-spam filter. There is some kind of blacklist for emails so you have to PM Leeloo (Administrator) about the problem, she seems to be able fix this issue . You can read more about it in this thread: http://help.forumotion.com/t106305-registration-email-error-sorry-but-this-e-mail-address-is-invalid

Thank you, I have now done that. Fingers crossed this can be sorted before this particular member decides to bail out.
