I have setup an Orchard installation. I am allowing users to create accounts and I have required the email challenge to validate email address ownership. However, in most cases when I click on the validate email link in the email it send me to the unable to validate address page. Are there are known issues that I am missing? I was able to get this to work 1 time out of 10.

When going through the debugger I get this exception on line 78 of UserService.cs

FormatException: {"Invalid length for a Base-64 char array."}

Looks like a machine key problem. Please check that you have one in your web.config, and if not, set one up.

I added the machineKey but the problem still persisted. I narrowed down the problem and filed an issue #18137.
