Default Didn't receive an activation email?

Excepting for the first few registrants for whom I had the email activation system off while we fiddled with board email, everyone who registers will have to activate their account and should receive an email with directions on doing this.

If you do not receive the activation email (possible that some ISPs like hotmail will treat it as spam and not deliver it to you), then just send me an email (cheryl @ srellim.org) from the email address you registered with, and I will activate you by hand. Be sure to include your user name in the email!

Ah, I was beginning to wonder...Guess I registered up while they were off! Didn't expect to be one of he first.

Looks very nice, Cheryl!

Working on restoring my post counts, hehe.

Actually, you registered while it was on originally, and I noticed that while four people had signed up nobody was posting, and went and tested the email system. I manually activated four people and turned off activation while my hubby worked on the issue.

Thanks for your suggestion. Yahoo was treating the activation e-mails as spam.

Maybe that's what happened to me, coz, I've got yahoo and I can't get activated at all. Sounds pathetic, I know but would love to post a thread or two but don't know how.

Okay I'm activated but how do I post threads? Received your email Cheryl (my thanks) but still can't seem to post a "newbee". Maybe I'm having a blonde moment day but....................................

It's definitely a dull day! Still smiling though.

See the "New Thread" button on the top left when you enter a forum? Click on that, then type in the message box and click Post at the bottom of that white space. Hope that's clear enough....

Hmmm
do you remain logged in?
I haven't had any problems here, but an old forum I used to go on refused to keep me logged in if I used AOL.

Thanks Cheryl...obviously it worked. However, I did not receive the additional email so have attempted to add srellim.org to the safe sender on the spam filter.
If this does not work I may need to register with a different email addy.

Thanks again
