    There is a problem in your server connection to gravatar, or gravatar to your server. This is not xenforo problem.

    Wait. Any chance the person who trying to register email is look-a-like spammer email?

    I've been seeing similar errors, though the gravatar one I saw was apparently due to gravatar bieng down. However, I saw the same error with a custom URL we use. I submitted a ticket, and was told it was most likely due to a DNS issue at my end.

    I ended up editing /etc/host and adding the custom URL there, and that solved my issues :)

    Never heard the likes of it.
    How do you end up doing custom URLs?

    Nope. Got legit users making this happen to...

    Also, seems to not be sending out activation email.

    The custom URL was just a sub-domain we created that points to a Google Appserver.
