View Full Version : Important notice to people with HOTMAIL/YAHOO ACCOUNTS

Feb 26th, 2003, 10:45 PM
If you are trying to register on this board and you have a hotmail account, please know this: HOTMAIL SUCKS. When you register for this board, your registration confirmation is sent to your email account, and without that code, your account cannot be activated. That being said, I constantly have registration confirmations sent back to be because hotmail was down at the time they were sent.

So, my suggestion to any of you who are considering registering on this board, is to NOT use a hotmail account for your contact email address. If you do use hotmail, understand that your confirmation email might never get through to you and you won't be able to login to the board with your new account.

Again, to sum things up: HOTMAIL SUCKS.

edit: I've also been noticing a few accounts signed up with Yahoo email have been failing as well, so it looks like Yahoo's email service is just as dandy as hotmail.

I have a hotmail account and nothing's happening to me yet :/

Feb 26th, 2003, 10:53 PM
Watson, if you already are registered on here with no problems, this obviously isn't a problem for you. :|

Feb 26th, 2003, 10:55 PM
I wish there was a "do'h" emoticon :(

Feb 27th, 2003, 10:57 PM
Actually, you are still missing some emails, Rongi. Though they're not nearly as important, you're missing a lot of the "reply notification" emails for whenever you've clicked "Notify me when a reply is posted". I've had quite a few of yours sent back to me.


Feb 27th, 2003, 10:59 PM
I delete those, rog. They pretty much just take up mailbox space. I would get something better, but I'm too cheap to pay :I

Feb 28th, 2003, 06:45 AM
Rongi, go into your profile and scroll down to set these to "No":

Always notify me of replies:
Sends an email when someone replies to a topic you have posted in. This can be changed whenever you post.
Notify on new Private Message:

They're on by default, but if you come here regularly then there's no point to them.

Feb 28th, 2003, 02:55 PM
heh,good thing i don`t use hotmail to sign up for things like this :)

Feb 28th, 2003, 03:28 PM
Yeah, if you'll notice, in the user list, zomboid is on there. I registered that first and was going to use it but my steelzombie@hotmail account is so fucked up that I can't get any emails from anyone I know, yet the fucking spam somehow gets in.

Feb 28th, 2003, 03:49 PM
thank you FS :)

Mar 4th, 2003, 05:11 PM
but wait...people that aren't registered can't write in here to ask you how to get it to work! what if there are still problems? it'll just turn into a vicious cycle!!! ahh!


Mar 4th, 2003, 09:45 PM
It's called email, Watson. Not a hard concept.


Mar 5th, 2003, 01:29 PM
you're so hurtful....

Mar 5th, 2003, 03:21 PM
I just registered under hotmail and it worked fine :)

Mar 5th, 2003, 05:12 PM
Glad it's working for some people at least. The point is, registering with a hotmail account is risky, cuz the confirmation emails don't always get through.

BTW, shouldn't there be something next to Domo in your sig file there? Why all the blank space to the right of him?

I dont know really I just like it kind of plain like that it looks better on a black background which it was originaly made for...

Mar 5th, 2003, 08:35 PM
Hey mock, I put no for getting reply notices, but I still keep getting them. What the hell?

Mar 5th, 2003, 10:41 PM
Don't check "notify me when a reply is posted" when you make a post. and uncheck it in your profile. you won't get notices if you do both of those things.

Mar 5th, 2003, 10:43 PM
Ah, I see.

Mar 12th, 2003, 09:14 AM
I use email.com


No problems here :)

Mar 14th, 2003, 03:14 AM
hotmail has worked fine for me for like 3 or 4 years?

May 27th, 2003, 03:57 AM
in my opinion hotmail is damn fine and on the rare occasions that it does stuff up it fixes itself by the next day so nyahh. it probably stuffs up when people continually fill up their account with spam emails.

Damn straight!

Hotmail is garbage. Check out Fastmail (http://www.fastmail.fm)... more space, you can check POP accounts, and the interface is

If a hotmail account is full all mails sent to it bounce back to the sender.

Yes! Kill the damn paperclip! Kill the butterfly! Hell, why not just Kill Bill? Gates, that is.

Yes, Hotmail sucks. I had no problems... but Hotmail still sucks.

and hotmail/yahoo still sucks

Feb 20th, 2007, 06:11 PM
Yep, I still get registration confirmation emails sent back from hotmail/yahoo accounts. So again, I wouldn't recommend registering an account on these forums using an email address with one of those services.

Mar 19th, 2007, 02:37 PM
Ha, my hotmail accoutn is shite, but it works, and I can't be arsed to delete it...

Oh, btw, how come on the emote domo's mouth moves? I thought it was stuck open?

Mar 21st, 2007, 01:29 AM
