SE Temp registration email question.... *Fixed*Follow

#1 Dec 28 2009 at 8:40 AM Rating: Good
EDIT: I use AOL for my emails and I had opened this email from within AOL itself and got the garbled up mess of letters... after messing around and trying to register from another email address I tried something .... I went to AOL.com and signed in there to read my email from a browser (FireFox) and the same exact email shows fine when doing it like that. I was able to click the link and register fine.

So I was signing up for a Square Enix ID and got to the point where you click Temporary Registration and they send you an email with a link...

I waited about 5 minutes and checked my email and the SE email was there so I opened it....

Well... in the body of the email was something like this:

The entire body was like that... nothing readable nor clickable... (I actually had to shorten it to post it here)


Anyone else have this problem?

I was going to try and redo the registration, but I think I have to wait 24 hours so my original registration can expire.

I think I have read a couple post similiar to this one they had to register with an alternate email before it worked . I would contact them through the help center on the issue and have the email available as proof of what happened.

I figured a way around it without having to register on a new email address.

The main post has the edit added to the top of it...

I got that too, on my AOL email acct. I seem to have lost all my old ID info, so I registered with my GMail address and all was good.
