Validating a New AVSIM Forums Account - Check your Junk/Spam Mail Folder

Recommended Posts

When you create a new account, a validation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address used in your registration.  We have seen many cases where the e-mail provider erroneously places the validation e-mail into the users junk/spam mail folder so please check that folder first for the validation e-mail. 

The validation e-mail was definitely sent.  Our system does not make mistakes.  The validation e-mail is either in your junk mail folder or you accidentally misspelled your e-mail address.  In this case, contact us using the form under the "Contact Us" tab above and ask for assistance.

Please validate your account as soon as possible as new accounts that have not been validated after an hour or more will be removed and you will have to attempt to create the account again.

Many new members are writing AVSIM stating they did not receive a validation e-mail from AVSIM.  When this happens I check the e-mail address as many misspell gmial.com or hottmial.com and I'll make the correction and resend the validation.  Those are easy.  But, if one did not receive the validation e-mail and the e-mail address appears to be correct, resending the e-mail or trying to answer your complaint will never happen if you do not add AVSIM.com to your safe recipients list in the junk mail options.  Many check their junk mail folder and still do not see the validation e-mail address and sometimes the Internet Service Provider you use will have an option on their site to block the e-mail even before it arrives to your inbox.  So, if you cannot register and you have checked your junk mail/spam folders, then you will never become a member at AVSIM until you fix the issue with your ISP.
