Verification Code not being sent.

Microsoft doesn't recognize the computer I'm using, so they sent a verification code to my email. Problem is, I'm not receiving it. I double-checked that it's the right email address, checked my spam folder and everything; still not sending. I'm so bloody frustrated at this point, I'm ready to toss my laptop out the window.

Help please?

 

Question Info

Unfortunately, these emails seem to give a lot of us problems. It's like you have to try at random times in order for the email to go through.

If you needed to update some items right away, you could still do so with the help of a Billing Agent by calling 1-800-4MY-XBOX

A few months ago I once tried to update my info, went to the billing site, was told to check my email for a code but I never got one.

One week later I get the email but it looks like the code is no longer valid.

It's odd because 2 days ago I went to the billing site again and I got the email right away.
