Greets all:

Quote from a discussion I had with a friend:

==========================================
Ok so I originally tried
Username:wildbilloh
email:wildbilloh@**************.com
never got the verification email
that was back in July
I own the domain, so I don't think its a domain issue
So last night I tried
Username:wboh74@**************.com
same issue
I confirmed both email accts can send a receive mail
==========================================

Any ideas? I believe his desired username would be the former rather than the latter.

Thanks folks.

I asked, and here is his reply:

===============================
I did try
and it says my email address needs verified
and to resend the verification email, click here
which I did
but still no email, even though it says it has been sent.
===============================

He says he checked all spam folders and filter settings, and nothing is getting trapped/filtered on his end.

If he can't receive the confirmation email at the email address he provided during registration, there's nothing I can do to assist.

Weird, I just tested his email by sending to wildbilloh@**************.com, and send/receive works fine, at least from my corporate domain, which has pretty tight controls in place.

Can't figure out why he would be having issues receiving from SF.

Hi there, I am the one in question that was having a problem signing up on the forum.

It was odd that my own private email wouldn't work, which of course I used with the wildbilloh username (which I wanted), and is now stuck in limbo trying to verify the email address.

I used my work email, and created this username (harkening back to my AOL days), so all is good now.

What was the username you attempted to register with, but could not receive the confirmation email?

Originally I tried wildbilloh

That is the handle I always use on forums, and email addresses, etc.

This was back in July, and I didn't get the verification email, I attempted to have it resent a couple times and gave up.

Last night I tried using wboh74 with the same results.

Both were for my own domain that I control, and both email accts work to send / receive ...just never got the verification email. Definitely odd.

Is there any way to switch my username to wildbilloh ? If so, I'd be very thankful.

If not, it's not the end of the world, at least I got one to work. Smile

Yes, that's why I asked. You're all set.
