Unable to log into hipchat

I can't log into HipChat web client or the app.  It seems that HipChat does not recognize my email address.  The email address is what i use to log into Atlassian JIRA.

Hi there. Creating your Atlassian account does not create your HipChat account automatically. Have your HipChat admin to invite you to your existing HipChat group. If there isn't any, create your first HipChat group now at the link below:

We actually worked it out. The account had not been verified. User had to access through email invite. 

It did appear that they had previously logged in on the admin screen, but maybe not. 

Recommend any one else having this issue ensures user logged in through email invite. (Always check those spam folders.)
