I've been trying to sign in to Vatsim, and everytime I enter an email address, it tells me that it is not an authenticated email address. Where can I get a free email address that will allow me to work with Vatsim. I have tried, hotmail.com, and emailaccount.com Thanks
try lycos mail, or
it sometimes "fools" them into thinking it's validated
Thanks FEM, however, I tried the lycos one, and Vatsim didn't accept it, and on the myownemail.com website, I don't see where I can sign up. I've been to this website before, but now, I think they are working on it, or it is canceled, etc. Thanks anyways.
oh yeah, it doesnt work for me now too.
The thing with VATSIM is you can't have a free email account (MSN, Yahoo). What about your ISP you should have an email with them?
Try Netscape, they may think you are using their ISP.
Be careful when trying to fool the VATSIM computers on your email address...they've been getting very strict around there recently (some new people stepped in to office), and they would have no problem cancelling your membership when they find out what you're using.
Also, it needs to be something with your name/address and all that registered with your email address, not just associated with it like it is on freeware. If your ISP didn't give you one then try your college email. If you're not in college or a profession use your parents email.
At the risk of seeming overly harsh, what part of,
"Do NOT Use free e-mail accounts. Make sure to use a valid address." which appears on the vatsim registration page, was unclear?
If you read that, why would you ask where you can get a free email account?
I didn't realize that by "valid", they meant nothing free. I guess I'll use the ISP account. Thank you
Actually, valid means an account that exists, so they can email your user ID and password to you. The part that means nothing free is, "Do NOT Use free e-mail accounts."
Your ISP email address should work.
