I registered for careers.stackoverflow.com today and everything is great except that I don't seem to get the verification email message. After waiting 30 minutes I have received nothing in my email account (hosted Google Apps email). I have checked the spam folder but can find no message. I returned and re-clicked on the "verify your email" link and again nothing. Interestingly I did receive, in a flash, the billing confirmation message at the same email address.
So, is there a deliberate delay? An issue? A bug? Or maybe Google is blocking it?
