Yep - checked junk (spam) folder
Checked email address too (which is correct as I got notification of your reply)
Still not arrived some 3 hrs later!
The only thing I can think of is that my email address appears as all lower case when there are come capital letters in it. Strange that the notifications go through but not the verification emails?!
Can't seem to be able to change the email address ('cos its linked to the Apple ID?!)

Try some of the suggestions here might help;
Or go to http://https://appleid.apple.com/cgi-bin/WebObjects/MyAppleId.woa/ and check all details have been filled as sometimes people have left birthdays out and have not been able to get the verfication e-mail.

Thanks for the swift reply. The first link didn't work, even after I'd stripped out the extra 'http://'
The link should be (for other users of this site): http://appletoolbox.com/2012/08/fix-unable-to-verify-apple-id-because-activation -verification-email-is-not-sent-received/
The second link also doesn't work - it should be: https://appleid.apple.com/cgi-bin/WebObjects/MyAppleId.woa/
When I sign in using the second link I get the following:
(obviously my email address isn't that one!)
The email address displayed is correct, but I can't verify any more information without having the verification email. Round and round in circles....
Is the only solution to simply ditch this Apple ID and create another one??
If I try to use my email address, won't I get an error saying that it is already in use??

sorry for my laziness in not checking my links though i am at work! yes if you try too use the same account it will give you an error saying the address is allready in use.
the only thing i can think off is that the e-mail has just not arrived yet and apple are being slow!

Thanks for your help so far.
I'm happy to get whatever help I can on this one - it is driving me barmy.
The email system must be very tardy as it is over six hours ago that I originally clicked on the verification button.
Can I request Apple delete the Apple ID with my email address so that I can create a new Apple ID??
If so, how do I contact Apple to request this - or is this something that I can do in an Apple Store?

Just so you know ive spoken To around 10 people wtih the same problem as you not reciving the verfcation e-mails, so it seems it will just be matter of waiting!
you could go to the apple store but i would suggest just wait and it will come through!

Still no verification email 3 days later.
I can't sign into iCloud on my phone because it says that the account is not verified, but I can't verify the account because I don't get the email.
Round and round in circles I go.
How do I resolve this?

Got nothing to do with waiting or anything else.
Email is sent, you have not received cause of one of two.
1. Your server blocks apple server emails
2. Your apple id and your email are different.
You are going to tell me that I am incorrect - see reason number 1 or 2.

I get notifications of updates to this thread, so not #1
I don't understand point #2. I thought your Apple ID WAS your email address, so if I get email (see #1 above) how can this email address be wrong?
I have an Apple ID - this one - which won't verify (it uses an aol email). My husband has his own Apple ID using a gmail email which he synchs with iCloud, no problem.
Any idea what is going on?
Currently talking to Apple Support here in the UK (been on hold for 3 mins so far)

I had a buddy who told me her email was @yahoo.com and she actually logged in with yahoo.com in to her yahoo account. But when she checked inside email address was @yahoo.co.uk.
I had another buddy who blocked apple and other servers like gmail from inside of the account, didn't block support.apple.com.

I can log in to my Apple ID using my email address and password.
I click on "send verification email" and I get nothing.
I wondered if I had got an errant space at the beginning or end of my Apple ID, so have highlighted the whole login box and re-entered the email addrsss manually several times - but no verification email comes through.
I'm up to 25 mins with Apple Support in the UK and the guy has just got me to go through the 'send verification email' thing again.
Ready to tear my hair out!
