At the time of account creation or any time after your account is validated you can add your E-mail address. In order to use this address in connection with this wiki it must be verified that you got access to the corresponding mailbox. For this purpose a verification mail titled WikiIndex email address confirmation will be send to the supplied address. This verification mail provides a link to the verification procedure. If you follow (click) this link, your address gets verified and you will see a message on the called up page: Your email address has now been confirmed.

Known problems of the past[edit]

Unfortunately there had been cases when this verification mail did not arrive in the destination mailbox even when the address supplied was valid.

  • We solved this problem at 1-11-2014


The solution to this problem was

  • To use another address hosted at another e-mail provider or more precisely with another domain name.
  • The verification mail is now (11/2014) sent by an address from the wikiindex.org domain. Whitelisting this domain may serve the purpose if this problem reoccurs.


Here is a list of domains about which we knew if they normally received the verification mail or not:

Domain received
aol.com yes
arcormail.de yes
bell.ca yes
facebook.com no
gmail.com yes
gmx.de (1&1) no
googlemail.com yes

succubus.net yes
t-online.de yes
web.de (1&1) no

This list is kept for reference in case of changes of server configuration. New configurations should be tested against this list.
