It has come to light that many AOL users that have registered on the website have not received the email confirmation that allows them to login.
What to do?
Double check the email address you used to register. If it is incorrect you will not receive the confirmation email and you will have to register again with your correct email address.
If you are certain that your email address has been entered correctly:
Wait 24 hours. At best, AOL mail systems have delayed the confirmation email sent to you.
If you have not received the confirmation email in 24 hours, send an email to
with the email address you used to register and I will manually approve your registration so you can login. Please be aware that I probably won't be able to email you to confirm that your registration is approved and approval may take a day (when I next check my email).
Why is this happening?
Everyone hates spam and AOL, like many ISP's, has taken measures to combat spam - but with blind technology rather than intelligent management.
AOL filter all messages that are sent to you (this is what email filters are designed to do) but AOL's filters are very aggressive and a great deal of legitimate correspondence that you want may not be delivered to you (up to 25% of legitimate emails may be rejected - Return Path Inc., August 2003).

What can you do about it?
Check your spam folder often and click on "This Is Not Spam" for legitimate email you would like to keep then add the sender to your address book. If you do not, it may automatically be marked as spam and deleted. Please read more

Complain to AOL. Let them know that you are not receiving all your email. Be advised that they may tell you that it is not AOL's problem and blame the senders ISP. Clearly, if the majority of AOL users suffer from this problem - it is an AOL problem.
