Hi,

I need to create an account under my Kickstarter e-mail efrancis@vo.lu but when I try, the confirmation mail never arrives (not in the spam box either). I finally used my gmail address and tried to change the e-mail after the account is created, but the same problem persists.

I've seen some systems insisting that I made a typo when entering my address and want to change the ending to "ru", but it so happens that I live in Luxembourg with "lu" ending and not is Russia, so I'm not sure if your system also tries to autocorrect this, thinking it's smarter than the user?

I just tested this and I think there might be another way:

Go to 'my profile'
Click on 'email settings'
Then add a secondary email to the 'list of my emails'.

When I tried this, it didn't send me a confirmation email, but just added the things I had access to with my test account to my normal account.

Eric,

The forum software indicates that it did send several emails to that address. It seems that none of these emails have been bounced yet.

To make sure you can receive emails at that address, I just sent you an email from my account. Did you receive it?

I confirm that I got your e-mail, Devaka, just not the confirmation e-mails. However Kate's suggestion to add this address as secondary e-mail worked fine as it does not require confirmation and that did give me access to her book from Kickstarter! Thanks for the suggestion!
