Has anyone successfully created a GMX email acct using Tor? It won't work for me - just get " Sorry, cannot process registration at this time." At lst, it wouldn't let me copy / paste PW twice - 2nd box showed diff # of asterisks & gave PWs don't match error. That session timed out on me.

I set my exit nodes to use US exits & GMX seems to recognize I'm in the U.S. (which I am). Cleared all cookies & cache, created new Tor identity & got new IP address. Went back & tried again & typed simple PW that met minimum criteria.

Still the "cannot process registration..." No explanation why. If it was because I mis typed the captcha, it didn't say so.

If it's worked for others (& maybe they could shed some light), I'll just wait & try much later. Thanks.

Sent GMX support a request about registration issues. Got auto response that included this (which explains problem registering w/ Tor):
*Registration Issues*

If you receive an error message during registration stating that "Your registration could not be processed at the moment. Please try again later. If the error persists, please contact us.", it is possible that your IP address has been blacklisted. This usually happens when the system notices that several accounts have been created from a certain IP or IP address range (such as in an office or organization which just uses one public IP for the whole network).

You would help us further investigating your case by sending us /your IP address (go to www.whatismyipaddress.com for more information/
Now, I changed the IP address before trying to register again, after it failed. But my guess is, so many people try registering w/ Tor & there are only so many exit nodes / IP addresses, that after a while, the same IP address must get used repeatedly.

I suppose I could keep changing IP address & trying - ad infinitum - seems like a LONG, unsure process. Any suggestions?
