How do I IDENTIFY myself with NickServ?

Identifying yourself with NickServ You’ll need to log in to your account each time you connect to IRC4Fun. The simplest, and most efficient, way to do this is to configure SASL, if your client supports it. If not, you can supply your login details, in the form <account>:<password>, as a server password and they will be forwarded to NickServ when you finish connecting.

Using SASL

Using SASL SASL is a method that allows identification to services (NickServ) during the connection process, before anything else happens - therefore eliminating the need to /msg NickServ identify.

IRC4Fun may require the use of SASL for certain Hosts and IP ranges due to frequent abuse.

Why have I not received an E-mail?

NickServ said it was sending me an email.  Why haven't I received it? Sometimes E-mails from IRC4Fun Services are mistaken by some providers as junk or spam.  In most cases, users can check their Junk / Spam folders and locate the expected email.  However, some providers (such as Outlook.com/Hotmail/MSN) block the emails from ever arriving to the user. Recommendations: Use an email account where providers are not known to completely block our emails (Such as Gmail or Yahoo!) If you have not received the email within 15 minutes, please check your Bulk / Junk / Spam folders
