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 browser).

Some e-mail clients have trouble building the link when the URL is very long and may shorten it 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.
