    I am getting 200-300 spam comments a day. Finally I gave up and tried to activate akismet. I got this error:

    The key you entered could not be verified because a connection to akismet.com could not be established. Please check your server configuration.

    I have got the exact same problem - except getting 200-300 spams every day... My akismet activation is just not possible... Is it, that my host is not allowing anything? Like outgoing HTTP ? Can anybody help?

    I am having the same issue. I've looked all over the forum and haven't found a good solution.

    I have the same problem. I just loaded up WP2.7 to fresh database and website using MimboPro theme. Did anyone figure out what the issue is and how to fix?

    Try installing it manually instead of using the widget - mine works perfectly.
