Yahoo and Hotmail Blocking Email

Thu, 18 Nov 2010 20:33:42 -0500 - ajanata

If you're trying to register for an account and use a Yahoo or Hotmail email address, you likely won't get your authorization email. They're both blocking mail from my server for no good reason. I've followed the instructions that their mail servers are telling mine in the error message, but it doesn't seem to have actually done anything. You'll have to use some other email address instead. Please note that this is NOT a problem on our end, it's ENTIRELY on Yahoo's and Hotmail's ends. If this doesn't clear up shortly I'll explicitly prevent people from being able to register with a Yahoo or Hotmail email address.

If you've tried to register already using a Yahoo or Hotmail email address, but have no gotten the authorization code, please drop by the support chat and we'll help you out.

Gmail does not appear to be affected.
