I did not receive the "click here to activate your account" email. I had to go to nerdy extremes to get it from the logs.

I'm just mentioning a configuration issue that has caused me an issue and maybe affects others. Sorry if this offends folks?

Thanks,

Most likely. I imagine all major mail providers reject emails from senders that don't resolve.

It's not that the site is failing to send the email, it's that your mail server is rejecting it.
Not much the site can do to fix your mail server filter.... IMO.
There's nothing -broke- that I need to fix on my mail server. There's little reason to allow emails from invalid senders, IMHO.

Cannot Receive Forum Emails

Can this config be addressed so I can receive emails from these forums?

Deferred: 450 4.1.8 <texaschl@server.texaschlforum.com>: Sender address rejected: Domain not found

# nslookup server.texaschlforum.com 8.8.8.8
Server: 8.8.8.8
Address: 8.8.8.8#53
** server can't find server.texaschlforum.com: NXDOMAIN

Thanks!
Scott
