Hi Auria,

I activated the account for andres0x. He may login using the password he set when he registered.

I wonder why this happens sometimes...
Maybe we should have a "I didn't get this mail, who can I contact" page.

Sometimes you have to be careful though. I do know that Idaho webhosting blocks and other domains because they are known as spammer domains. So when someone registers with that domain, I get a failure notification that the mail could not be delivered. I have *never* had someone complain from such domains that they miss an activation mail, so I expect that many or not all attempts with such email addresses were fraudilous.

But if someone emails, it is usually genuine as spammers do not take much action if there are hundreds of forums to try.
