Some signup issues

Thanks for the invite. So far I like what you are doing. I hit one bump in the signup process and I had one comment.

First my comment: When creating a new user account does the password have to be that secure? I appreciate the need, but it seems a little more extreme than our normal beta login. Just a question.

The bump in the process: I waited and waited for the e-mail. I signed up with this using Gmail. Well it went into my Spam, OK, but then it wouldn't let me do anything with the e-mail, like click on the verify link. Here is a screen shot of the e-mail:

 I viewed the e-mail as text and then copied and pasted the link to verify my account. Not sure if regular users would be able to do that.

Would be happy to provide any additional information if you need.

Re: Some signup issues

Thanks for the information. We are aware of it and looking into what we can do. Gmail has a very powerful Spam and Phishing filter so we are not sure what we can do. I did test this last night myself and got the same result you did.

Re: Some signup issues

Gmail did block it for me as well. I also have a great regular e-mail. So this works

Re: Some signup issues

Hi,

I use Outlook 2003 German Version. The junkmail filter did the same with the activation-mail. 

I hope you can fix this issue.......or you have to put a warning message (yes readable for all people ) where you set a hint that sometimes the activation-mail could marked as spam. (The best: In big red letters at the end of the "signup"-form)

Don't know if a trusted certificate can help?!?!?

Cheerio

Not sure. Maybe enough of us reported it as not spam/phishing that it finally got flagged as such ;)
