Confirmation email never arrives


#1

Several hours ago now, I tried to sign up for an account. It accepted my username and told me to wait for a confirmation email.

It never came. YES, I looked in my spam folder. It isn’t there. I have attempted to have the confirmation email resent to me REPEATEDLY. Nothing happens.

From what I’ve googled, this is a fairly common problem.

I tried signing up with a different email, but now the username I want is locked up, so I can’t.

Can someone address this?

Which Mastodon instance are you using? Also, without revealing your email address, are you using some popular email service? Or are you running your own?
