    Activation-Problems

    Hey folks,
    after upgrading our forums to fix some problems and grant you a better forum to browse we mainly focused on some bugs we lately noticed. One of them was activation codes/mails in general not properly getting sent/received.


    Now I got all your notifications via our CONTACT system and investigated each and every case (even though you may not have received any message(s) so far.).
    Problem is that the error isn't caused by us, but Microsoft and their blacklist-systems.
    For some reason users with @hotmail emails will not receive any mails by us whatsoever.
    We tried several ways to find a workaround but none of them seems to work so far.


    So, if you use an @hotmail.* (hotmail.de, hotmail.co.uk, hotmail.com, ..) address you will not be able to register or do anything with your email on d3scene.
    We're sorry for that problem but again, we currently can not do something against this. I'll get in contact with Microsoft and see if we can solve this issue, other than that, please use another email for the moment.


    Best regards, Tracky

    Microsoft probably uses Windows Servers (lawls - we would hope?)
    They're probably just BSOD'ing xD

    That sucks though, do you receive any message back with a reason why the mail is being denied ? assuming that its being denied since other mail services sound fine, so it's not your fault - unless they want you to verify yourself or something to that point.

    Nope, couldn't find a proper way to contact them just yet.
    We might apply changes to our vBulletin internal classes/scripts to adjust the header of our mails. This way we may be able to build up a workaround, but I can't promise things yet.

    Worst case would be to block hotmail.* and force users to register with another email.

    Doesn't Microsoft own Hotmail?
