“DSH”I had a hard time registering until I remembered seeing something about email to Cox being blocked.   Based on that I checked the /var/log/maillog on the mail server and found that the server had (correctly) failed to accept an incoming email connection from sendgrid.net about the time I registered. Based on that I temporarily modified the access.db file to accept sendgrid.net mail and was able to register.  The access.db file has since been restored to again not accept connections from sendgrid.net because of all the spam the originates from that source.   
The reason I mention this is that it might help other non Cox users that are having trouble registering by providing  a starting place when trying to figure out why.  If you use an ISP for your email, you might ask them if they also are blocking sendgrid.net because of spam.
 


Thx, much appreciated!
