Cannot register to submit a bug report

I've tried twice to register myself at bugs.python.org. But the confirmation
email message never arrives. (Yes, I checked my spam folder.) What do I do
now?

We can try to debug this

Any chance it's Spyware Doctor or some anti-virus flagging the message
and hiding it?

Here are some headers I get in a test confirmation email, maybe the
different values for 'from' make it look spammish:
FROM: http://www.velocityreviews.com/forums/(E-Mail Removed)
TO: local@localhost
From nobody Sun Mar 29 23:02:37 2009
[...]
Subject: Complete your registration to Tracker -- key ITK...
To: local@localhost
From: Tracker <(E-Mail Removed)>
Date: Sun, 29 Mar 2009 23:02:37 +0000
Precedence: bulk

HTH,
Daniel

Thanks for the suggestion, but that's probably not it. No message appears on
my ISP mail server (Yahoo), either. That's beyond the reach of my machine's
Spyware Doctor.

I plan to take Terry's suggestion: send a message to the Webmaster.

Tx,
John

My ISP (AT&T/Yahoo) was blocking email from the Python bug-tracker: "The
sending system has been identified as a source of spam". I took a suggestion
from Martin Lowis on the "tracker-discuss" list: register under a different
email address. That solution worked fine.

I hope you were able to suggest to them that that identification must be
an error. Frustrating given the spam sources that somehow do not get
identified.

Better than waiting for AT&T to wise up.

The AT&T web site carefully explained that only administrators, not mere
mortals, would be able to submit a "this is not spam" appeal. So I forwarded
the appropriate info to Martin Lowis, my Tracker-discuss benefactor.
