I can't create a Fedora account as it says my email address is blacklisted. Is there a FAQ or guidelines about what is blacklisted and what is not? I'm using Zoho and GMX, same problem with both accounts.

on the ask fedora pages is a FEEDBACK contact form, use it to ask someone in charge why it's blocked.

You can check for the reason at by IP or domain.

Report this to your Email service provider or your Email administrator so they can check the logs for problems reported. I usually find that domains need DNS records to prove the email is legit. The domain may be on a previously listed IP a spammer used. But, getting to the logs is the fastest way to answers. Hope that helped. kerdog

I got NO answer to your question, but maybe a work-around:

gmx means your are from Germany ? Is your provider 1&1 too ?

for 1&1: your able to create another email address at their control center. your might redirect/forward that new email address to your old email adress.

I guess this could work wih another email provider too.
