When registering on a bbPress forum, this is displayed after you submit your registration:

Make sure to whitelist our domain (http://www.mywebsite.com) so the confirmation email doesn't get caught by any filters.

That's not really how whitelists work. Normally, you whitelist a domain or an email address, so wouldn't it be better to say this in http://trac.bbpress.org/browser/trunk/bb-templates/kakumei/register.php#L11 register.php on line 11:

<?php printf(__("A password will be mailed to the email address you provide. Make sure to whitelist our email address (%s) so the confirmation email doesn't get caught by any  filters."), bb_get_option( 'admin_email' )) ?>

*chuckle* Wouldn't it be moot at this step anyway? The email has already been sent. Whitelisting after the fact isn't going to help.

better idea may be to state to check the spam folder.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

(In [816]) Just get rid of the 'whitelist our domain' text. Fixes #601
