Email verification for transferred domain

I have just transferred a domain from enom to godaddy and i have received an email saying

 Previous attempts to contact the domain registrant for email address verification have not been answered. If the email address remains unverified, ICANN* will require us to temporarily put your website on hold until verification is complete.

Please verify the contact information listed below right away to avoid any interruption of services.


The problem is,that's not my email. It's a whois email. I have tried to change the domain contact details but it won't let me. Any suggestions?
