I'm experiencing unusually long delays on receiving the security code via email after using the Verify link in the account area of PC settings on Windows 8.1. When I use Verify it asks were to send the code and then when I enter the matching email address and then click next I get a screen where to input the security code. I then checked the inbox of my Verizon.net POP3 account using Windows Live Mail but the security code email did not arrive until about 8 hours later and then when I try to use the code it doesn't work because it's expired. The codes are only good for about 10 minutes.
