Last night I opened a Mt. Gox account and attempted to send it 2 coins. I have never traded before. I left Bitcoin running all night to make sure that I would get a confirmation, but never did. A later (not related) transaction, however, was confirmed very quickly. What has me worried is that I can't get into the Mt. Gox account that I opened. I am nearly certain that I remember correctly my password and username but the website tells me that I haven't. When I go through the "lost password" procedure, they tell me that they will send me an email, but it has been 2 hours and I have received anything (I did this twice), although my confirmation email last night was sent immediately.
There is no record of my transaction on the list of unconfirmed transactions on BitcoinCharts. On BockExplorer I get the following:

I recognize my own address here, but I don't see the address that Mt. Gox requested me to send my coins to. Can anyone give me an idea of what might be going on? Or what I should do?
UPDATE: I figured out the Mt. Gox problem. Apparently they do not let you sign in from a different IP address. How are people who use TOR supposed to use the system? So, my problem is resolved, at least from my perspective. I have drained my Mt. Gox account and received a confirmation on it. The bizarre thing is that my initial transaction to send Mt. Gox my 2 coins is still unconfirmed! As long as I have the coins back in my wallet, though, I am not too concerned.
