eMail Broken: Express 4K Activation Link Not Received.

Picked up Roku but it will not activate?  A

Roku - Express 4K+ (2021) Streaming Media Player with Voice Remote, TV Controls,

Yesterday but it aint working. All the steps went fine until 'enter email.'

The email is never sent by Roku. Boiled some Crawfish and waited.  No mail? Will not activate?

Switched from Gmail to Outlook accts and tried a 2nd time.  Cooking  Cajun Gumbo to pass time but still Roku Rocko did not send the activation email? WHY ROKU DOES NOT MAKE IT SIMPLE AND EASY like Microsoft and Google?

Went to Roku website and created this account.

But, the TV / Roku boots up into 'enter' and email.  NO CHOICE to login instead of creating a new acct. Im not getting anywhere.  Rebooted everything 3 times. No choice to login to Roku.  Only 1 c choice; enter email to activate?
