I'm looking for tips on how to reduce the number of times my students' email-based self-authentication email is not received (goes to SPAM or gets bounced). It's becoming a pain manually confirming their accounts.
My students are generally NOT tech-savvy so I can't ask them to white-list my email domain pre-emptively.
I was hoping to be able to disable the email authentication step but, using "no authentication" the students are asked to update their profile including providing an email address - this is then confirmed by sending out a confirmation email!!!
I still need the students to be able to create their OWN accounts. I teach over 2000 students yearly, who do not arrive at the site from any uniform source.
My Moodle site is 1.9.4 (not keen on upgrading - it tends to mess up my accounts each time).
If anyone found a way around this, I'd be grateful for advice.
