I usually prefer web based email and forum accounts.
The first page Firefox opens to when you open it in my version Linux Mint (17.2)(new install) is the Linux Mint website
I tried to register and got a registration code from their irc site.
But when tried to login, I was told username invalid, contact administrator. I was directed to start a "unix" smtp account. They asked for outgoing smtp server and outgoing username
I was going to input the other web based email account where I wanted to receive email associated with my linuxmint.com forum account, but the fields already had my linuxmint username.
I don't know if I have to set up an account using my linuxmint user name or if I can register with the site using my other email.
I have attached 2 screenshot showing what comes up.
Can just sign up for LinuxMint.com using my normal web based method?
Any help appreciated.
