I changed my Apple ID, and I have to confirm my old mail to my new id. But the will always redirect to "find my phone" (maybe some issue with my last iPod touch that was stolen).

Now, how can I access my mail in to confirm for my new ID? Or, why it's redirecting?

It's likely that you migrated your MobileMe email to iCloud and you can only log into to access the few things that remain. So, try getting your mail at

If you didn't migrate things, you may have to open a support ticket with Apple to have them look at your account. You can always try logging into the same URL from a new computer or clear cookies, caches in the browser in case it's something that isn't clean on the client side, but in all likelihood, the problem is on the server end and the application on the web server believes you don't have mail any more for your logged in account.
