Why would it take 5-7 days to get an automated email????
I ran into similar issues, ended up having to renew my domains with them because the authorization email never arrived, and I ran out of time before I was "allowed" to transfer the domain. This has happened on 2 different domains now.
It's not just you ... their system is horked.

a year or so ago i bought a domain from them and they didn't send me the info and my info i registered didn't work so i emailed them and no reply than a year later i get billed was last October and i phoned them on hold for at least 30 min than they said they cant refund its over the refund policy days or w/e so I'm never buying from there again.
domains take at least 5 days to be transfered once you receive the notifying mail from Godaddy...
Last time I transferred out domains from there, it took maybe 24 hours. But, the OP's problem is not them releasing the domain, but rather them not giving up the EPP code/registrar key/whatever you want to call it -- which shouldn't take 5 days to send out.

I called 480-505-8877/8855 and was on hold for 2 hours, and then got asked half a million times why I wanted to transfer anyways, and why I wasn't satisfied.
Here's a tip: when you call your registrar, state upfront you're not interested in any of their offers and what-not before you tell them your actual issue. Various registrars' phone personnel do sales pitches noawadays, and it's not going to go away.
Correct email on record? Filters?
Hmm, sounds like an email latency on their part...
The only thing I don't get from them is anything I request.
That is certainly odd. Just to make sure, change your email to, for example, your gmail account and then try making the change again. Some emails might get stuck in transit, even if some are let through. (even the "get your name"-annoyances )
