Problem activating Account

Hello,

Initially, I tried to register with a Yahoo mail address. I tried three times, but the activation mail did not arrive. I had the same experience when using a Hotmail address.

Eventually, I managed to receive the activation message with another email account (not Yahoo or Hotmail).

Can anyone explain this?

In addition, I would like to change my email address to the Yahoo address, but because it has not been activated I cannot use it. Is it possible for me to use this address?

Thank you

Ps, It looks like Iam unable to upload an Avatar - am I correct?

I am not the admin, but I'm guessing this server does not send messages with SPF and/or DMARC records causing Yahoo and Hotmail to reject the messages (these two mail services are also problematic with mailing-lists). I don't think anything can be done about that since the admin is not active anymore.

I quickly looked through the account settings: I did not see an avatar option.

Thank you

I am not familiar with the terms: 'SPF and/or DMARC records'

I am surprised that the admin is no longer active, surely someone must be in charge?

Best wishes.
