Registration issue

Hey everyone. Just discovered the site tonight. I hope to learn some things here.

To the point:

My wife was assigned some of the missions for a class, but when she attempts to register no confirmation email shows up in her account. So I gave it a try, and it went to my email no problem. The only thing I can think of is that hers is a .edu email address, and perhaps the university's IT-sec is filtering out the email? We of course have checked her spam folder in her email account.

I also tried searching for this issue before posting. Didn't find an earlier post on this exact subject.

Much obliged for any advice.

That'd be my guess. My highschool tried to set up a web content firewall once. They blocked the word "hack" indiscriminately. And "breast". Good times. College didn't care what you looked at.
Assume that everything I say is or could be a lie.

Also had some registration issues. Never received the confirmation email for the school's .edu email address I tried, or my yahoo.com email, or a risup.net email (checking spam, waiting hours, etc.). Finally tried with a gmail and it came through immediately. Strange.
