I have installed MAMP Pro & Joomla 3.3.6 on a Mac [JamarJoomla] and requested 2 login accounts. After 2 days of waiting for response to activation token request, I still get the message below.  

Login denied! Your account has either been blocked or you have not activated it yet."

Any suggestions to resolve this issue? Seems if I am the administrator, name & password should allow access with no other restrictions. If I installed MAMP/Joomla on my Mac, why do I need activation? If blocked, what does this mean - settings on my Mac (OS X 10.10.5)?

To whom (where, what) does the activation request go?

This is the admin login URL: http://jamar:8888/administrator/index.php
