Verification email not being sent

<< < (2/2)

Update and clarification to Saint's post above:

1. So far, Saint still has not found an automatic way to fully fix this issue.   :(

2. He has found a workaround that allows him to manually activate accounts without users replying to the verification e-mail.
- This workaround doesn't allow users to get opt-in e-mails, but it does allow them to do everything else.   ;D
- The workaround also applies if you try to update the e-mail address on your account and no longer have access to your old e-mail address.

If you or a friend need this workaround, please e-mail and include the username and a profile link, if possible, ( i.e. Username "John Bennett";u=103777) so Saint is sure to get the right account in case there are several accounts with similar usernames like the situation here.

I don't know how to resolve this, I have made efforts before with various services as per whatever instructions they give to get off their spam list, but since the server sends people notifications and other bits of automated email in fairly high volume, our server gets flagged as SPAM-sending, even though all the emails are legitimate and opt-in.

I don't have a way to fix this, though it's been some time since I looked.

I think it's got to do with SPF, DMARC, DKIM and TLS settings. SPF has ~all, which basically means 'use any server you like', i.e. more or less useless DKIM and DMARC are absent. TLS uses 1.0 and 1.1, which are considered insecure by now. I guess that has at least to do with why MS blocks you. We regularly have to fix those things for customers. After things are setup more properly, you can use (need to login with an MS account though) to get you of the ban-list. Usually they respond within a day or two.
