Looks like I was late to the party, I wasn't verified. However, I did recently change my E-mail address from my old hotmail account I've had since I first got steam to my Gmail, so that maybe why. But then again, my Steam accounts as old as you can get, so I prooobably was.

Thank you also, I have a very old steam account, having adopted it in beta. I just looked and saw I too was unverified.
