Reminders when troubleshooting missing emails

  • Validation code emails come from do_not_reply@intuit.com during sign-in and usually take 1 to 2 minutes before you receive it. Make sure to check your spam and junk folders.
  • Search for the email address do_not_reply@intuit.com in all of your folders including spam and junk. If you see one of the emails from Intuit, right-click the email, then select This is not spam or Not Junk.
  • Some email domains may block @intuit.com communications on their servers. These steps may resolve your issue:
    1. Send an email to do_not_reply@intuit.com. This should trigger the email domain to recognise the @intuit domain as a trusted site. Then try your request again.
    2. Wait at least 5 minutes after requesting a new verification code to see if the email appears in your inbox.
    3. If the email doesn't appear after 10 minutes, contact your email provider to evaluate security settings for your email profile.
