Solved Personal Email Declared As Invalid

Post by BitCrash on October 11th 2011, 9:43 pm


Edit kirk
Email address removed


I cannot seem to set my forum admin's account to my email, "".

The website and email are both valid, and owned by me, registered through GoDaddy.com. I cannot for the life of me get Forumotion to accept it as a valid email, it only says that it is invalid.

Any solutions?

Where and what are you trying to do/use the email for when it says it's invalid?

Can you provide a screen shot as well.

Please do not post any email addresses in public.
If ever needed by staff we will ask you to PM it to us.
Thanx

It's just a site i have set up. It's the webmaster account for illiumonline.com.

THAT one doesn't work, but when I use a different webmaster account for a different site, it does work.

I'm trying to change the email of the admin account on the forum, not the actual forumotion account.

are you trying to change the email address in your Admin panel?
Just go into your admin panel, and change the email address there in your Admin panel profile page.

It should not have anything to do with another webmaster account from any other sites. But i may not be completely understanding correctly.. That's why i ask you to to post a screen shot so i can see where it's telling you this.

And yet, when I enter a different email i have (gmail@lukedowell.com, obviously a custom one as well. Maybe because it contains "gmail" in it?) it works.

When trying to configure the forum's admin email in firefox, I get:

"Error

So that the sending of e-mail works correctly, the e-mail used for the forum must be valid."

and it says the same thing when i try and change a user's email. It just really doesn't like admin@illiumonline.com. :c

It will take only gmail/yahoo/hotmail addresses or any major email provider's addresses.

And there is no way around that? Seems odd to me that it would be so restrictive in that aspect. :/

Since this thread appears to be solved, I will lock this thread and mark it as solved.
