Do you mean a validation e-mail for setting up a Steam account?

How long ago was the e-mail sent? You probably just need to be patient - because of the sale everything has slowed down considerably.

When I bought a couple of games earlier today, it took about 90 minutes for my confirmation e-mail to arrive.

I've had this account for many, many years. But it's prompting me to click the validation email link in order for it to proceed to checkout... But it's not sending the email. I've tried going into settings and clicking "Send Validation Email" several times.

I really hope this gets resolved soon, because I am really hoping to get Fallout 3 while it is still 20 bucks.

If it is just slow service, I bet I will end up with about 20 validation emails in a while <_<

Strange, never had Steam asking me that before.

Anyone else?

I am having the same problem. I have waited over 4 hours and no confirmation email has yet to arrive. I have tried with a couple different emails since then to no avail.

I would really like to be able to purchase games at the sale prices. This is not the first time I have had issues using the steam store. It's almost as if they do not want my money.

Something needs to be done about this. It is very frustrating.

Check your spam/junk folder, if you have some security suite scanning emails, make sure it isn't marking it as fraud or something and moving it into some kind of chest.

I need to change my email address linked to my Steam account, because the email I was using from my own domain name has expired. And obviously I can't log into it to get the validation email.

Is there a way around this?

I think you need to contact Steam Support.
