No longer receiving 2FA emails from MWB

Recommended Posts

Hello Support,

I'm unable to receive the 2 factor authentication emails, but I had no problem signing up for this forum and verifying my account via Email

Also I have a support ticket on this already open, and I also receive those emails without any problem

However, no matter what I try, I can't receive my 2FA email to login to my account


Long story short, my main work email was not accessible for a period of time.

During this time I was unable to login to MWB since I couldn't check my email to get the 2FA code

I contacted support, they verified my ID and changed my email to an alternative gmail address. I was able to login with my gmail address and receive the 2FA emails without any problem


Shortly after that, the account somehow reverted back to using my work email address (which was still down and not accessible)

I figured I'd wait until my work email was back up and try to login. Once my email access was restored, I tried to login but my work email wasn't getting the 2FA emails (and Ive always got them in the past without any issue) Checked Junk/Spam, added to safe senders, mail admin in my company also added mwb to the safe senders list. Still nothing... no 2FA emails

So I contact support again and we change the email address for the account back to my gmail address, but now no 2FA emails are making it to the gmail account either... Nothing has changed on the gmail account, I still have 2FA emails from MWB in my inbox from Oct 15th.

Anyways I have zero access to my account. I need to install MWB on a few new computers but can't even get logged in.

I have no idea who's end the problem exists on... I've never had any problems receiving this email in the past up until now

Can this be fixed? or can we disable 2FA on my account? or add an SMS number for 2FA?
