 Wondering why Microsoft email addresses are not permitted on BookTalk.org?
Why are Microsoft email addresses not permitted on BookTalk.org?

Forums like BookTalk.org have had ongoing issues with Microsoft's email services for years. Microsoft silently suppresses many emails that they consider spam, so that they never reach your spam folder. Automated notifications from forums are flagged and suppressed by this system, meaning that if we allowed you to register with one of these addresses, you would never receive the notification to activate your account. We can't change Microsoft's policy, so to minimize everyone's frustration we have to disallow the use of their emails on our site.

Microsoft does have a policy for removing sites from their spam blacklists, and we have used this method in the past to temporarily alleviate the issue. The problem recurs within weeks or months, so we're left with few alternatives.

This is not a solution, but the only solution to this issue would be for people who have Microsoft email accounts to do two things.

1. Complain to Microsoft that you should decide what email is important, and that you wish to receive all of your email, not just what Microsoft thinks you should see.

2. Avoid reporting legitimate automated notifications as spam. This problem came about in part because people flagged too many of these legitimate notifications, so now nobody using Microsoft email services receives them.

We've been frustrated with this issue, as have some of you who use these services. An alternative is to migrate to a better service like Gmail, or any email provider that doesn't censor your inbox.
