I used your exact message in a modal. The registered-but-not-activated users dropped to 5-10% and before this they where around 25-30%. Your advice was simply superb. Thanks again.

All these are great suggestions. Thanks a lot. In particilar the 4th in which my system currently suffers (new activation or password reset links cancel the old ones and this can be very bad for the users).

Fantastic! I love the rewording and the reasoning behind it. Regarding the modal, it used to look like stackexchange's or twitter's style of messages (100% width, strong background, fixed positioning on top) but I changed it to modal to grab the user's attention and it actually did improve my conversions (from registration to activation).

BTW the active "click here" link is not possible since I send text/plain email (because I want 100% delivery).

Today 10am and 4 minutes ago are great. I use them as well. In this question I'm only interested in dates though.

Thanks for bringing <time> to my attention. Edit: Oops... that's HTML5. Until I do the switch I think I'll use a microformats alternative: microformats.org/wiki/datetime-design-pattern
