Can someone with a Steam account do me a favor.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 


I found this virus yesterday while my Steam account was off. I know I didn't type in my password since my previous full virus scan, but I wanted to change my password anyway. The thing is, Steam is saying it has sent a confirmation code to my specific email account, but it isn't showing up in my inbox.

Could someone try changing their password to the point of getting sent a confirmation code to see if it is sent?

I have a mail.com account, so if anyone has that then I can see if it is a problem on the email account end.

they send you an email, sometimes it's faster then other times
also if they tried ot change your email address on your steam account they can't as they'll send a confirmation email to your email.

Well it has been about 20 minutes and the confirmation code is still not in my inbox. I was wondering if Steam was having an issue or if mail.com changed something that was giving an issue.

Damn, I have to go to work and can't deal with Steam until tomorrow. And I don't know how to fix this if my email account isn't playing nice with the emails Steam sends me.
