    Can't set up a blog- email refused

    I've had a bit of trouble setting up a blog. Each time I try to it tells me the email address I'm providing is incorrect- but it isn't! Anybody else had this prob?

    Taken from Stuart's Blog FAQ, http://www.rebreatherworld.com/how-d...her-world.html

    What domain is you're email address at? There were originally some issues with certain email addy's, definately AOL, and there were a few others also...

    Thats the plus side - the downside are:
    1. You absolutely can not have any characters in your username other than letters - no spaces no _ no - etc - I will probably roll this out to RBW too to make it easier.
    2. If you mis spell a blog name it always takes you to mine as mine was the first one - I guess this means I should make an effort to make it look pretty!
    3. Some email addresses can not sign up at the moment - this looks like only AOL ones, I am not sure why and am working on it...

    Blog Problem solved

    This may be of use to others- the email address I was using was a @doctors.org.uk. Recently they have started using the form "....net.uk" in preference although I can still use my email address in its original form. I converted the email address on the blog from a ".org.uk" one to a ".net.uk"type and lo-and-behold me blogs up and running!
