How long does UNLOCK DOMAIN confirmation E-Mail take?

I have "unlocked" a domain so it may be moved. According to GoDaddy, I should be receiving an email to confirm that I want to unlock it.. it's been two hours. I've checked to see it my correct email is listed and it is. Just how long does it take to get this magic e-mail?

Greetings @Rufus812, the email comes out usually within minutes not hours, check any spam or bulk mail filters you may have. Otherwise, you can always check the current status in the account or on the public whois at (the Status will show as "ok" or "active").


I hope this helps,
