Why don’t I receive the activation email when I register?
SPAM and email providers
Many email providers are now blocking email sent from forums and shops as they (usually incorrectly) believe it is SPAM. There is not much that we can do about this as their requirements to prove we are not sending SPAM are very difficult to meet. The MEAP site does have all the proper MX entries and we always follow up known SPAM report issues but in some cases it is just impossible to get around.
For example: web.de mail sent from the MEAP site sometimes bounces back and is marked as SPAM. Also gmx.de and gmx.net often seem to be returned as SPAM.
If you are trying to register and not receiving your activation email, I suggest you try using a different email account. Lately it seems that Hotmail and Google Mail are working perfectly with no bounce back problems.
If an alternative email address is not available to you, please send a message via the General Contact Form and we’ll get it sorted manually. Bear in mind though that it will always be preferable to have an email account that works properly with the MEAP site, in order to receive download links and replies to support requests etc.
Please Note: This is different from having SPAM filtered out by your email application. This email from MEAP is rejected by your server and will never reach you at all, in any way.
A note about eCheque payments
If you have used PayPal eCheque payment it usually takes about 5-7 days for the eCheque to clear.
After the eCheque has cleared you will receive your MEAP download link automatically.
This is not my rules – This is the way PayPal works with eCheques.
