Question

On April 17 2017 my linden viewer, only during my login, gives a shortlink to verify my email address. The message is that IM's will not be forwarded to our registered email. Please fix the process or remove the faulty logon warning and continue to forward IM's sent to me to my registered email. Thank you, Athena.

not sure if you know you'r not talking to LL here this is part of a forum, not support

... you will háve to verify your email yourself. It's in your accountpage, not that difficult to find.

It's not faulty logon, and needs no fix, it's a announcement that you have to do it, those logon messages aren't personalized so you will keep seeing that as long the servers have the command to show it.

The link to verify my email is no longer active; how can I verify it?

It's extremely easy.  Open your dashboard at secondlife.com >>> Account and click Change E-mail Address. You'll see the link right there.  Enter your information.

A lot of people change e-mail addresses but forget to tell Linden Lab.  Then they wonder why they don't receive important notices and blame the Lab for not telling them. All this "verification" process is doing is reminding you to check now and be sure that your e-mail address on file is correct.

Thank you, Rolig.

I use my dashboard frequently. My email is correct there. I'm not going to change my *correct email address* to that same address [*correct email affress*].

You do not have to change your adress.  When you get to the dashboard page you are so familiar with,  there is a link to "verify" the email address.   Click it and you will get an email sent to that correct address.   In the email is a link to verify that you received it at your correct address.  If you don't want to verify with the Lab (not just yourself) that the address is correct, they may not forward your offlines to you.

As Cinn says, it's a painless process, but it's your choice.  If you don't want to take a few seconds to verify that the address on file is correct, you just won't get any more forwarded IMs.

Now what?.

Because I do want to continue my email notifications, and that I did not studiously analyze and document the process Cinn elaborated, I appear to have locked my ID after I tried to change the email from the old to the same old, rather than ONLY clicking the "Verify".

Exactly WHY that Studiously inept event occurred is because in my email, when I got Roligs response, I went to my dashboard and into my "change email" which I have no interest or intention of changing.

 

I will give it another try only clicking the Verify.

looks like you acted a bit overenthousiastic.. you only need to click verify, nothing more.

I just watched the login screen and sure enough, there's the message about verifying e-mail. I clicked the link in the message, clicked "Verify", waited for the e-mail, clicked the link in it and was done.

I really should pay more attention to things.

Thank you all. As an update, I succeeded in "Verifying my Email" and passed the word to all my friends. Most rely heavily on seeing their IM's when they're offline. since they're spread all over the globe.

 

"Just click the verify then follow through when you get your email"

 

Athena.
