hey been trying to get a workmate signed up as he has bought a soarer and keeps saying email address is invalid can anyone help out? tried multiple email addresses and filled out all the needed info aswell..
You would be surprised at the number of people that think eg their email address starts with "www."
Maybe you could help by watching over his shoulder? Apart from hotmail, there are NO checks to see if the email address exists, only that the format is correct - firstname.lastname@example.org or similar. Commas or spaces would be a fail.
If he/she gets the syntax right, but the address is wrong, then they won't get the acceptance/activation mail, but the form will be accepted.
