I've sent Ethereum to my Ethereum Classic address!
Ethereum (ETH) and Ethereum Classic (ETC) are two separate currencies now, so if you send ETC to your ETH address, or vice-versa, your wallet won't receive the transaction correctly. You'll need to manually sweep the funds from the incorrect receiving wallet into the correct wallet.
Step 1: Export your private keys. Here's how: http://support.exodus.io/article/86-how-can-i-view-my-private-keys
You'll need to export the private keys for the wallet you mistakenly sent your coins to. For example, if you sent ETH to an ETC wallet, you should export your ETC private keys. If you sent ETC to a ETH wallet, you'd export your ETH private keys.
Step 2: In the '.csv' file that is exported to your Desktop, find the address that you sent your coins to, and copy its corresponding private key.
Step 3: Import this private key into the correct wallet. Here's how: http://support.exodus.io/article/87-can-i-import-a-private-key
For example, if you sent your ETH to a ETC wallet, you should import the ETC private key into your ETH wallet. In this case, you'd go to 'Ethereum' within the 'assets' section of the Developer Menu, and click 'Move Funds'. If you had sent your ETC into your ETH wallet, you'd select the ETH Classic asset menu instead.
Step 4: Make sure to delete the private keys you exported, and empty the recycle bin! It's a security risk to leave them there - Anyone who gains access to them can steal your Ethereum or Ethereum Classic.
