Hello, my name is Dan.
I will do my best to help you, the only stupid question is the unasked one.

Usually that happens when an incorrect email address is on record.
Are you sure that the email for the Apple account is correct? Do you get other email to that account ok?
Have you looked in the junk folder for email?

Thanks Dan

I have checked my junk mail and there is no message. My email account is definitely working. There may by a mistake with the email account that is linked to my apple account but if that is the case how can I check?



Expert:  Daniel replied 4 years ago.
Greg, the fastest way and maybe the only way is to talk to Apple about this.
This may require the serial number of this new MacBook Pro.
The number to call is 1.800.275.2273, you get recordings to wade through so listen carefully.
There will be a choice for a person.
This is where to find the serial number and other info quickly.
Unfortunately I cannot access your account to fix it.
Apple is very serious about security and if the email happens to be one character off then the call is necessary, a trip to an Apple store may not get the results you need as they do not have access to the accounts either.
Wish I could offer a quick easy fix, calling Apple will work the best.
