    Hey there everyone.
    It seems people are not able to sign up to http://www.iktib.com

    could some people try?

    I've tried with yahoo and gmail and it says that the email is not allowed, however I've not placed any restrictions.

    Help people can give will be appreciated.

    edit: UPDATE! I restricted the following domains
    camelbackscion.biz toyotawebspecials.net
    however it restricted ALL domains from signing up.

    I think this is a glitch. I'm using RC4

    you're having registered members, because you have some updated blogs on your front page...

    and it's impossible that the system block the emails if you did not apply any rule for them. the system have no glitch in that part of the code... did you add some addons ???

    I thought RC4 asked you to enter the domains you wanted to allow registrations from? So it would sound like only people with camelbackscion.biz and toyotawebspecials.net e-mail addresses would be able to create new blogs. Later revisions added the ability to ban domains.

    I just entered some bogus toyotawebspecials.net e-mail address and was able to create a blog. I can't activate it since the address is bogus, but here is what I got

    But, before you can start using your blog, you must activate it.

    Check your inbox at jack@toyotawebspecials.net and click the link given.

    If you do not activate your blog within two days, you will have to sign up again.

    I think some people missed the update.

    "I restricted the following domains
    camelbackscion.biz toyotawebspecials.net
    however it restricted ALL domains from signing up."

    I removed those blocked domains and now anybody is able to sign up.

    amnesiak,

    It did exactly what it was supposed to do it restricted all registrations to two domains camlebacksicon.biz and toyotawebspecials.net. Right after your initial post I was able to register using a bogus toyotawebspecials.net e-mail, but could not with any other e-mail. I guess I'm not clear on where you entered these domains because RC4 only has the option to limit registration to listed domains not block specific domains.

    How do I open up a mail service online on my webpage for users to login and use?

    @umair... yes... I can....

    @kahles, I understand, it blocks all domains except for the ones listed.
    I thought that the list was actually the domains you wanted to block and not allow.

    Perhaps that could be added in future builds of Wordpress

    In the latest, version 1.0 I beleive there's another field added: one for allow only these domains, and another for block these domains.
