[deprecated] Password reset not working with gmail?

Postby rocknroll237 » 14 Feb 2012, 14:32

Does anyone know why my @gmail email address doesn't receive a confirmation email when I reset my password?
It works when I use my @googlemail address, but when I never received an email when I used the @gmail address...

Thanks,

Cam

Thanks for reporting and testing!

Are you 100% sure that your google mail email address is fine with "@gmail.com" being used? I often heard that "gmail" doesn't work for some regions for legal reasons.

Have you double-checked your spam folder?

Ahh, well if that's the case then it's google's problem. Yes, the gmail email never reached me.

but what if you use for example http://anonymailer.net/ to send an email to @gmail and one to @googlemail? Does only one of the addresses work?

I did receive an email from gmail using that website. Hmmm. Maybe it is the forum after all. :think:

Sorry but I have to ask: you did check the spam folder? :)
