We are running a site for teachers where accounts are by invite only. I’ve done a bulk invite of 300 emails (all emails were verified by sending them a message first). After 3 days, we only have 1/3 of them redeemed. Many people are telling me they are not getting the invite email, and report that they are checking the spam folder.
I’m asking our sys admin for some details from the Mandrill log, which I do not have access to and to check if our server is not blacklisted.
I’ve gone through the list of 200 pending and did a one by one resend.
I assume (?) there is no way for me as an admin to manually create accounts / assign passwords.
My only other idea is to temporarily open registration and set up reg by twitter (they all have twitter). The only downside is I’ll have to figure out what groups to assign them to (we have subgroups of ~40 that are hidden from other general users).
Any ideas for what else I can check on email? So much in discourse (passwords) hinge on email.
