? I can't login and access members' only services after submitting the membership form?

Although you may have successfully registered as members online, you are still required to activate your account by verifying that your registered e-mail address is active. In order to do that, you are required to login to your own e-mail account (e.g. Yahoo, Gmail, Hotmail, etc.) and click on the hyperlink given in the e-mail. Once you have confirmed your e-mail account is correct, you will then be able to login directly in your subsequent visits.

Note that if you do not receive the activation e-mail, in most cases the reasons are probably one of the followings:-

  • It has been sent to your Spam or Junk E-mail folder, please check;

  • Your e-mail account is not active especially for web-based e-mail types, please login to confirm it is active;

  • Your e-mail address given is not correct, please check your entry again;

  • The anti-spam program installed in your office's e-mail server may have rejected it, you may wish to add our domain min.sg in your Safe List or consult your office administrator;

  • Due to slow internet connectivity, there may be some time delay in receiving our e-mail. Please give it more time.

  • If you are using free e-mail from Yahoo, Gmail, Hotmail, Outlook, Live, MSN, etc. please add our e-mail address to your Contact. This will ensure that our e-mail will be delivered to your Inbox.
