    Hi everyone. I hope this is ok to ask this question here. I was just trying to register at eggbid because I would like to get some eggs and it won't let me because it says their server has blocked my emails domain. Just wondering if anyone else had a problem with this and if it's even a good idea to buy eggs here. Thanks

    I've bought eggs thru eggbid several times without problems. It seems like I remember somebody else having problems registering with them. If you do a search you might be able to find that thread.

    I think you have to have an email address that is paid for--not like Hotmail or Yahoo. I'm not positive--but it seems like I read that somewhere.

    I had that problem too. I believe the block they free ones like gmail, etc. I registered with another email address I had and then I think I later changed it to the one I use all the time.


    edited for typo.

    Eggbid has free accounts blocked. You will have to sign up with verizon or something along those lines. Its to help sellers not gto get screwed over by non paying bidders.

    If I remember right, they do not allow you to join if your email is from yahoo, gmail, and a few other free email servers.

    Your email needs to be one from your internet provider or a paid email account.

    It doesn't accept addys from Yahoo, hotmail, MSN etc... from my experience and from what I've read from others. But it accepted my local server email addy.

    Did anyone else have a problem getting their temp password from there. I registered at 8 last night and I have yet to get an email with it.

    I registered last night as well, and I still haven't received an email from them. Let me know if and when you do.
