Confirmation Message Delays

If you still don't receive it, it's possible that the message is being delayed at your mail server. E-mail is usually delivered almost instantaneously but that's not always the case. Sometimes non-personal e-mail is held for an hour or two.

If you don't receive the message within two hours, you might wish to contact your e-mail provider.

Yahoo Mail

Yahoo isn't good at telling the difference between spam and legitimate e-mail.

If a message appears to be something impersonal or automated, such as WikiTree's confirmation messages, Yahoo often delays the delivery.

Usually, they will deliver it after a few hours.

We apologize for the inconvenience, but there seems to be nothing we can do about it from this end. Although we have tried to convince Yahoo that we don't send spam, they won't take our word for it. It might help if you contacted Yahoo's customer service and told them you would like to receive e-mail from Thank you.

Feel free to e-mail us at However, there may be nothing we can do on this end.

The ability to receive e-mail is very important for WikiTree collaboration and we can't confirm accounts without it.
