    Appears I must have gmail account to apply for pro business membership.

    When I follow the links to sign up for pro business access it forces me to sign up for gmail. REally? Do I have to log in to gmail to apply for business access?
    What if I can't remember my gmail address then can I just get a new one?

    Not exactly... The Gmail info was put there as a helpful link to make sure you are using the correct gmail account. Gmail is the most used email system here.

    Underneath the Gmail info is the word "Required *". That is for all of the required info below that show an asterisk (*).

    We do not require a gmail account. If you have a AOL, BellSouth, Yahoo address you will find they filter your email and decide on the email you can get or not. They do not work well with our domain.


    So... you can use your old account or a new gmail or any other email you want.

    I'll try again and turn off all the anti malware software.

    There is no way I can enter any data to join the Business section without signing into my google account. It says "to fill out this form you Must Sign In". When you hit the "sign in" button it goes straight to a screen that says "sign in with your google account". There is no way around it. I tried my normal sign in email and it says something like "that is not a google account". If I fake it out to get the sign in window to go away then everything is grayed out and I cannot enter any data. As far as I can tell, none of my security software is interfering but that could still be the problem I don't know. I'll go try another computer now.

    Nope - it only will accept a gmail email and no other email brings joy.

    I just clicked on the "join here" button and it forces me to enter google gmail address. This is on a third computer far away from my home.
    Here is the link it directs me to:

    Charlie. Can you verify please?
    Sorry I'm late. I didn't get my @icemeister message.

    Yes I was going to tell you about this really strange application that came in this morning. I figured it was some jerk playing games.

    So are you saying you got a message requiring gmail from the MC Pro Member application? That's a new one for me.
