    I've been getting no verification emails, however I'm not sure that it's totally SFFWorld's issue. The emails aren't being received by my sbcglobal.net email addresses. I had to create a hotmail account to use for this site.

    I'm not sure what can be done, but I thought I would let you know.

    Thanks for letting us know.

    The Admin package shows that you should be able to receive them.... may not be an issue at our end! Might be worth checking your Spam filters?

    Nothing in spam folders. I've tried multiple email addresses (well...two). I think it's something ATT is doing.

    Thanks again, Lazerus: I have set the settings here, so it should work, at least through the Hotmail account.
    Think you're right though: probably from the other end... might be worth checking your settings there?

    All is well using the hotmail account. I'm going to find out who to contact about getting ATT to find out what the problem is and fix it. I'll probably put up a post over at dslreports.com, another place I frequent.

    That's great: a solution of sorts!

    I, too, have had that trouble with sbcglobal.net I finally joined using another address and received my email. However, it told me that the user name I wanted to have is now not available, so I had to make another. Sounds like I have a partial account elsewhere.
