  • Do Activation Emails expire?

    I run a large active forum. I have 60+ registrations a day (legit ones anyway - I block thousands of bot registrations a day) and for the most part it's pro forma. Folk simply confirm their email address and they are activated.

    But about 2 or 3 times a month I will hear from someone that when they click the activation email that they get an error message telling them that the URL is invalid.

    I've been trying to figure out what the issue could be that creates this. Sometimes when I check the affected accounts I see that they registered a few or more days ago.

    Do, Activation Emails expire? If so, when? Could there be any other reason for this issue?

    As I said, it's not usual for there to be a thousand registrations a month and those activate without any problems. But some very small subset of these fail and I'm trying to figure out why and how to correct it.
