    I've tried twice to register myself at bugs.python.org. But the confirmation
    email message never arrives. (Yes, I checked my spam folder.) What do I do
    now?

    We can try to debug this :)

    Any chance it's Spyware Doctor or some anti-virus flagging the message
    and hiding it?

    Here are some headers I get in a test confirmation email, maybe the
    different values for 'from' make it look spammish:
    FROM:
    TO: local@localhost
    From nobody Sun Mar 29 23:02:37 2009
    [...]
    Subject: Complete your registration to Tracker -- key ITK...
    To: local@localhost
    From: Tracker <>
    Date: Sun, 29 Mar 2009 23:02:37 +0000
    Precedence: bulk

    HTH,

    Thanks for the suggestion, but that's probably not it. No message appears on
    my ISP mail server (Yahoo), either. That's beyond the reach of my machine's
    Spyware Doctor.

    I plan to take Terry's suggestion: send a message to the Webmaster.

    Tx,
    John

    My ISP (AT&T/Yahoo) was blocking email from the Python bug-tracker: "The
    sending system has been identified as a source of spam". I took a suggestion
    from Martin Lowis on the "tracker-discuss" list: register under a different
    email address. That solution worked fine.

    I hope you were able to suggest to them that that identification must be
    an error. Frustrating given the spam sources that somehow do not get
    identified.

    Better than waiting for AT&T to wise up. ;-)

    The AT&T web site carefully explained that only administrators, not mere
    mortals, would be able to submit a "this is not spam" appeal. So I forwarded
    the appropriate info to Martin Lowis, my Tracker-discuss benefactor.
