How Long Does It Take to Generate an Automatic Email?

For some reason I recently got it into my head to install Windows on my MacBook. Heresy, I hear you cry. But I’m on holidays, and I’m bored. Because Leopard comes with Boot Camp, I thought I’d give that a try, but it turns out that you need an original XP/ Vista disk – which I don’t have.

My next stop was Parallels Desktop for Mac. They offer a free trial, which is all I really need. In order to download Parallels, you need to create an account and sign in. As is common these days, an email with a confirmation link is sent to the address provided. It is now nearly 6 hours since I tried to create an account, and still no confirmation email.

If it takes this long to send an email, it doesn’t bode well for the quality of their product. In fact, I think I’ll give this a miss altogether.
