Why do I get an 'invalid activation code' error message when I click on the link in the activation e-mail?
Our activation message includes a unique code but the actual link is
generated by your e-mail program (which reads the URL in the e-mail and
creates a clickable link, launching your Internet browser).
Some e-mail clients have trouble building the link when the URL is very long
and may truncate it (cut it off) after a certain number of characters.
If you get an 'invalid code' error message, please cut and paste the link
from our e-mail into a new browser window instead of clicking directly on the
link from inside your e-mail program.
