Subject: Leiden Observatory Identity Management verification email
From: Observatory Identity Provider

If you didn't initiate two-factor authentication, just ignore this message.

where the text Link to e-mail address verification contains the link to verify and confirm your 2FA setup. For your information the link starts like: and the key is a long series of characters.
