Default Steam issue on new machine

November 29th, 2013, 18:09
I just built a new Windows 7 machine with Office Professional 2010. I installed the Steam client on it and tried to log in. I got the usual message that it recognized I was on a new machine and that an email with a Steam Guard activation code would be sent to me to be used to gain access to my account. Well, I never got the email. I checked the junk and spam email folders and it was definitely not there. I turned off the junk filter completely, added the appropriate domain to my Safe Senders list, and tried again to no avail. Steam Support says the email was sent but I definitely have not gotten it.

The funny thing is, that when I set up a Steam Support account I did successfully receive an activation email from them. I just can't get the one to allow me into my Steam account. Has anyone else had this problem?

I'm starting to see why some people are really against Steam's DRM. I can't access any of my games right now.
