    I registered an account at scanmypost.
    However I still got the email from nominet saying they couldn't verify that address and they would delete all my domains in a month blah blah.
    I just got a typical helpful response from nominet:
    'at registration we would require all the details you submit for the .uk to match the .co.uk' - this was *after* I asked how people outside of UK could register .uk domains. She obviously doesn't know or understand that if you registered a .co.uk with an address outside of UK you can never use those details to register a .uk.
    This is becoming a usual nominet unnecessary farce.

    I registered a .uk the other day just to check out the procedure for adding my ScanMyPost address, that address is attached to the domain and was validated by Nominet the same day I regged the .uk, no email received about validation of the address.

    Scanmypost must be doing a roaring business as I signed up today.

    Ironically, I still have to use a PO Box when registering a matching .uk - otherwise the application gets rejected for non-matching addresses...
