Not receiving Emby Connect Confirmation

Recommended Posts

DarrenClimie-Newman

Hi.

 

Is there any issue with the Emby Connect email verification process?

 

I've tried to add 2 new Emby Connect accounts to my server, but both emails haven't received the confirm/link email after registering?

 

Thanks

Hi, is your address a Hotmail address?

Hi Luke.

 

Mine is a hotmail (this account already verified), the other two are 1 Hotmail.co.uk and 1 outlook.com.

 

Thanks

There is an issue with hotmail that we are actively looking into, but you don't need to wait for this. The confirmation email is just that, confirmation/information. There's nothing you need to do with it, so you can start using the Emby Connect sign in process without waiting for it.

 

Please let us know if this helps. Thanks.

Hi Luke

 

I tried that anyway, it doesn't recognise either email addresses used

What if you try adding the Emby Connect username instead of the email address?

Hi.  Can you please complain to your email provider (Microsoft)?

 

Thanks!

Is there any update on this? Is this issue able to be fixed with Microsoft email platforms, or is there a need to use an alternative email to register?

 

@Luke / @@ebr - Can we expect a fix for this anytime soon?

Hi @@Luke, @@ebr,

 

I assume there is a wider issue with Emby Connect accounts?

 

I've now created a user with a Gmail account, and i immediately received the New Registration at Emby Community email. I followed the link to activate the account.

 

I then signed in as the new user and received the Confirm Emby Account Link email. I clicked the 'I Confirm This Link' to complete the process.

 

When I then try and sign in it advises "Invalid Username or Password, please try again".

 

I know its correct, because I can sign in to the Community as this user.

 

This is really frustrating as I was a Plex user for 3+ years, and I switched to Emby Premiere only 3 weeks ago. Now 2 users in my house cannot connect remotely via Emby Connect.

 

Can you please advise what the issue is, and what is being done to fix this? Its clearly a known issue, as there are several threads on Reddit.

 

Thanks

Darren

I mean even if I add you guys to trusted senders, I don't get your email. It's weird. Outlook / Hotmail is like the biggest email service next to Gmail and been around forever ~

I also kind of hope that this was a sarcastic comment, because I really don't see how Microsoft are going to take any notice of a joe public who complains they're not receiving a specific email from a Media Server Provider..... [emoji848]

Hi @@Luke

 

Thanks for the update, it is appreciated.

 

One of the reasons I left Plex was because you'd never get a direct response from them about an issue, they still haven't fixed a playback issue on Amazon Firesticks for over 2 years!

 

Knowing its being worked on is good to know!

 

Cheers

 

Darren

I believe our hotmail issues are resolved now with Microsoft.

 

If you're still having a general Emby Connect problem then @@cayars can take a closer look with you. Thanks.
