    Windows 8 account verification email not arriving


    Alright, new problem. I can't download Skype unless I download it through the store, and I can't download it through the store until it verifies my email address (it's a gmail one), and I can't verify my email address until the email actually arrives which it hasn't after countless times of me clicking the resend button and several hours of waiting. Does anyone know what's up?

    I had the same problem when using my domain email. So I switched to a live account and that seemed to work.
