Potential bug found in signup system

We have identified a possible fault with the sign-up process for Author Buzz. It only affects people signing up with email but not with WordPress.com.

The fault appears to be that the email for new accounts never arrives. Sometimes. Possibly.

How you can help

Right now what we need is some people willing to sign up via email and report back to us. I need to figure out if the email is being sent consistently, if there is a service provider that is blocking us, or if some emails are ending up in spam traps.
