« on: July 09, 2018, 07:51:26 AM »
Hi. For some reason i cant receive my activation email for my account on the email address i want to use (msn.com)? I have checked junk, added the kboards address to my safe senders list, spoken to outlook, and still no joy. (I have created a new kboards account using my work email for the purpose of this chat getting help to sort out the one i need to use)

what should i do next? Very grateful for any help

Have you tried modifying this account with your msn address? 
See if that works. If not, let me know and I'll see what I can do.
You can PM me the msn email address and I can try it from the admin side of things...

We'll get it sorted out! :)

A lot of the public email services spamblock. This means they delete any email they think is spam, and dont bother telling anyone they did so. So most likely msn's server says the forum email is spam, and not worthy of being delivered. This happens a lot with forum emails. It's best to use an email address which is not gmail, hotmail, yahoo etc, as they are the worst.

While Timothy is right about problems that can occur, Gmail generally works well here.  MSN can have problems.  Tpholden, has this been straightened out?

He and I figured it out.  We did it through PM yesterday or the day before.
