How can I validate my Bitbucket email for SourceTree registration?

When I try to register SourceTree with my Bitbucket email and login, I get a message that says that my email need to be validated to continue. However, I can't find any option to send a validation request from Bitbucket. How do I validate my Bitbucket email?

By the way, I don't have any trouble logging in to Bitbucket itself or receiving emails at this address from Bitbucket.
