White-list. Email programme?

Post by RonH »

Recently I joined a forum but the registration email confirmation did not get sent to me. The forum comment was as follows:

I will activate your account at our forum, but in order for you to receive any further emails from us, you will have to somehow white-list our domain in your email program.

I use T'bird on Gmail and registered online using Chrome. Any idea how I can resolve this issue :scratch:

Did you look in your Junk folder?

Have you logged directly into your Gmail account and looked in your All Mail folder?

And also worth checking the online Spam and Bin folders too...

As Leif says. it's best to log into Gmail in the browser. If the message cannot be found in All Mail, Spam or Bin (the latter is called Trash on my PC), that means that it hasn't been delivered to your account, i.e. it has been blocked at the server level. You probably can't do anything about that.

No, nothing shows up in the Gmail/browser so I guess that I will just have to 'suck and see' if anything gets changed.
Thanks for trying.
