  2. Go to the accounts section of the developer portal and complete the steps to link your sandbox account to your developer account.
  3. Return to the test account and click the Confirm Your Email button.
  4. Click Notifications from the Developer Dashboard. You will see a simulated inbox that includes the confirmation email.
  5. Click Confirm my email address and complete the activation process.
