    Figtree3 What would you do if you weren't afraid?

    One of the pieces of advice that is often given is to check your email spam folder to see if the "permission" message went there. That isn't always the problem but has stopped some people in the past. Meanwhile, we can wait for daveydempsey (or one of the other moderators, if they know what to do). Peter rarely visits here, so you may not hear from him. But they can contact him if necessary.

    I can't help you, but you must fully read the Registration confirmation post in the Support And Testing section of the forum.

    Ah -- That's right, that is one of the forums that can only be seen by registered members.

    Here is the text of it, written by daveydempsey.

    "The forum software automatically sends the request for email confirmation when a new member registers. And if that member ask that another request for confirmation be sent to them because they didn't get the 1st one, then the software automatically sends you another one. Point is - the emails are sent !

    But here's the issue - if you didn't get the 1st one, you're not going to get any others either. And this applies to everyone who has this problem.

    What happens is this. The emails are being sent to you, but they are simply not getting to you. Why ? There are several possible reasons.
    1 - the emails may be in your SPAM folder.
    2 - your email provider may be blocking emails from Antiquers because they think the emails are SPAM.
    3 - the email program (software) that you use may be blocking emails from Antiquers because that program thinks the emails are SPAM.
    4 - you may inadvertently be the reason yourself because of the settings you are using on your email program.
    5 - it may be the anti-virus or security software you are using, and or the settings you chose when you set that program up.

    Any and all of these may be the reason the emails do not get to you. And not a single one of them have anything to do with Antiquers, nor can the Antiquers staff do anything to correct the problem because quite simply - we do not have any control over any of that.

    The only person who can fix the problem is you, the member, the person who is having the problem. And if the problem is being caused by reason #2 or #3 even you can't fix it because you don't have any control over those. But you can fix the problem if any of the other 3 are the cause. And no, I can't help you figure it out - only you have ability to figure it out because only you have access to all the settings you have to check to be able to figure it out.

    But what you can do is this - you can choose to use Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo - they all work. Members who use them do not have problems getting emails from Antiquers.

    And if you don't like having more than 1 email address to check every day well that's pretty easy to manage too. Just have emails sent to your new email address forwarded to the email address you like to use. Then all your emails end up in one place."

    I can no longer access the site on my mobile phone or tablet. I just get an error message in my browser stating that the site is not secure and that the SSL cert has expired. SO here I am living life on the edge...

    @JunkshopJim , those of us who are foolish enough to ignore the security warnings are hiding out on this thread:;)
