The Apple ID is the same mail with which you registered at this Apple forum.
Check the mail for a notice from Apple.
If you don't have any, check the junk mail for the notice.
Sorry for my poor English.

Apple (Icloud and iforgot verification process) does not like sending emails to yahoo domains for some reason.
I had to:
1. change my primary address from a yahoo to my work email address via appleid.apple.com
2. send a verification to my work address via aapleid.apple.com
3. respond to the work address email verification
4. send to this address via icloud.
The lesson... if appleid wont send a verification to your primary email... icloud won't either.

Question - Are you using different Apple IDs to support iCloud and the iTunes store?
If Yes, then you need to check your other settings on your devices and make sure that you have not added any of your Apple IDs as an additional email address for the other. Adding your iTunes account information as an alternate email to Facetime, Gamecenter, etc will cause this problem.
I verified this by intentionally misconfiguring one of our enterprise iPhone 4S, waited for the problem to occur, and then corrected it. The network will not self-correct itself immediately, so check your settings and the wait about 8 hours or so (estimated, it took about a day for the problem to occur and overnight to resolve itself after we made the correction)
Here's the excerpt from the email that I received from the Business Partner support desk:
The issue appears to lie with the fact that the email address you are trying to use is associated with another Apple ID. In order for your account to be set up correctly, your email address can not be associated with more than one Apple ID or iTunes Store account, not even as an alternate or secondary email.
If the email address is associated with another Apple ID, not iTunes account, but Apple ID for use with Game Center, Face TIme, etc, the email can't be verified for your iTunes Store account.If in case you have the email address associated with other Apple services you need to remove the email from other Apple id accounts.
To find out if you have any other Apple IDs, other than your iTunes Store account(s), please review the article below:

What happens to the previous account? Does everything just stay the same even after changing your e-mail? I changed my e-mail account and so had to re-enter credit card information and what not. But I didn't lose the actual account, right?
