This is my exact experience. I'm presently on hold trying to talk with someone. No wizard box ever appeared in my desktop QB even after following the steps in the link in the email, with the instructions on how to get all the updates. It says the deadline for this "ID confirmation" is 2/15. Part of me wants to take the chance that it is fine. I only got the email one time, and yes, saved this as a to-do item for when I didn't have pressing deadlines.
