“Make sure to whitelist our domain” message inaccurate?

    When registering on a bbPress forum, this is displayed after you submit your registration:

    Make sure to whitelist our domain (http://www.mywebsite.com) so the confirmation email doesn’t get caught by any filters.

    That’s not really how whitelists work. Normally, you whitelist a domain or an email address, so wouldn’t it be better to say this in register.php on line 11:

    <?php printf(__("A password will be mailed to the email address you provide. Make sure to whitelist our email address (%s) so the confirmation email doesn't get caught by any  filters."), bb_get_option( 'admin_email' )) ?> 

    Make sense?

    *chuckle* Wouldn’t it be moot at this step anyway? The email has already been sent. Whitelisting after the fact isn’t going to help.

    better idea may be to state to check the spam folder.

    Good point – it’s too late at that point. Maybe state it on the previous page then, BEFORE they hit submit?
