This problem seems to be functional related
see also
on adding domains and email addresses an email probe
will be initiated, differently to the
create account verification, where the system
sends an email to the specified email address, sends
the probe function emails to domain specific email
addresses like postmaster@mydomain, administrator@mydomain
or webmaster@mydomain. Those addresses differ from the
primary email address of the used account, so therefor
the sent email address will not be listed under the
account that has been used for the probe function

email address selection needs to be expanded for the Testserver Mgmt System
view my account - MAIL
  check primary email address
+ check secondary email addresses
+ check added domains and add aliases:
   root@, hostmaster@, postmaster@, admin@, webmaster@

Probably this problem has been solved with a Testserver Mgmt System fix
by displaying not only mails for the primary email address of an account.
So also selecting mails for secondary accounts and the 5 known aliases
for domain add verification (i.e. postmaster@yourdomain)

following sql queries are needed to get those addtl. email addresses:
1. select from users where email='primary-email-address-of-account';
2. select from email where memid=[];
3. select domains.domain from domains where memid=[];
