Email Verification Help

(Formerly the "Support, Feedback and Forum Announcements" forum.)
Please help us make Online Book Club even better! Please post suggestions, feedback and ideas for new features. Wild brainstorming and potentially 'crazy ideas' are super-strongly encouraged! :)

For new members (or old members who run into an issue), please make a post in this forum asking any questions you have about using the site and how it works that are not answered in the FAQ. Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

I have received the email, but there is no link for me to click on when I open the email. I also don't know how to contact my email provider.

I just submitted a formal complaint on this matter, but I will reiterate on this platform to hopefully speed up the process. I've sent the verification email to myself three times, each time the message is successfully delivered yet with "This message has no content." as the only content. No link or other messages appear. Let me know if there is something I can do on my end. Thank you.

I am not able to verify my email address for the review team. Your domain isn't blocked. I've received emails from Online Book Club. The verification email was sent to me on November 12th at 4:59 am est.
I was able to verify it a moment ago for the Book of the Month, but still cannot verify it for the Review Team page. I have not navigated away from the page it takes me to. Online Book Club is an approved sender. Since I'm receiving other emails from that email address, it doesn't appear to be a domain blocking issue. I did however look up the troubleshooting info from my provider. My email address is correct. I've tried opening the link on android and iPad. I still have the original verification email as well as other emails, so it's not a spam folder issue either. It's subtracting 10 points on my score due to this.

Hello,
At first, I did not get an email to verify my email address. So I clicked on the link and had it resend it to me. Then the email showed up in my inbox, which was great! However, when I opened the email, there was nothing there. There are no words and there is no link to click on. I clicked on the resend button again, and the same thing happened. The emailed showed up, but there is nothing in the body of the email. So I am not sure what I need to do now.

Thank you in advance for your help.
Hi,

Sorry for the trouble. Please forward the blank email, or even better the full source code of the blank email) to me with a brief recap of the issue at:

scott@onlinebookclub.org


Thank you,
Scott

I also had a problem with this. Every time I looked at my score it was showing that my email wasn't verified. I was sure that I had verified when I first got the email. Turns out, I just needed to click, 'recalculate the score', and it showed that I was verified. Easy, but I was frustrated for a while.

My email verification was easy, but for those having trouble this is a very clear guide!
