Have you checked your spam folder? For some reason they land in there..

Thanks, the mail actually was in spam folder and I missed it. But there's another problem:
I follow the activation link and get message "Your account activation token is expired"
Okay, I enter my credentials and press "Send Mail" button and get "This account is already activated".
But when I try to login it still requires an activation.

This is weird. What is your username? I can try to activate it manually.

and requesting a new activation token doesn't work right?

btw, you can request a new activation link with via this url: https://forums.flaskbb.org/auth/activate

I probably should include it somewhere in the navigation.

I have activated your account. Unfortunately I can't reproduce your error :/

Thanks so much! Now it works fine!

I guess steps to reproduce the problem should look like:

  1. register new user
  2. try to login (before using of confirmation link)
  3. use confirmation link from email at least after 24 hours (maybe more) - it should tell you that it's expired
  4. try to login and re-request confirmation email

Hi Sh4nks. I was able to reproduce the error and your co-contributor merged a pull request with my fix yesterday.

However I am getting an issue whereby all of my tokens are showing as invalid. Whatever I do, the links in the the email never work, and always lead back to the verify page on the site and a message saying 'invalid token'. As it works for you i'm guessing this is config rather than a bug. Any ideas of where to look?
