I'm glad you were able to figure it out! AOL still seems to be stuck in a technological dark age... the same problems I had with it when I had an account 13 years ago are STILL problems now! That's sad. LOL!

You might want to set yourself up with a Gmail account or something, just to have an alternative so things like links work. I think you can change the e-mail address for your account in your settings if you decide to do that. :)

Welcome to the team! :D

Hi and Welcome to the team. emoticon

Knowing is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do.

Remember, today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday.

The best way to cheer yourself is to cheer somebody else up.

Use it up,
Wear it out,
Make it do, or
Do without.

Hi..yes, I am a "newbie" to SparkPeople. I'm having a problem that I do not see on the FAQ's. In order to be able to send mail, I have to click on a "link" in a confirmation e-mail that SparkPeople send to my e-mail address. Well, AOL doesn't let the "link" show up as a link in the body of the e-mail. If I copy/paste the un-underlined "link" and paste it in my browser....SparkPeople says there was an error and for me to click on a link and resend the e-mail...when I click on that link..the e-mail is sent to me and again, it doesn't show up as a link...get the picture? I'm in a vicious circle and can't get out of it!!! HELP!

***Ok I figured it out & for those of you who do have aol, here is what you have to do. You have to highlight the un-underlined "link" that SparkPeople sent you in the e-mail, then open a new e-mail and put your name in so you can send this to yourself. In the body of the e-mail you need to right click and create a hyperlink, paste the url into the space (I had to go back and delete the http// that was already there so I didn't have two http// in my hyperlink) then once you have the underlined link in the body of the e-mail ..send it to yourself, THEN you can click on the "link" and it will verify your confirmation e-mail with SparkPeople and you can receive mail. Whew! ok now I need mail! LOL
