Changing e-mail error

Posts: 5
Hi everyone,

If you ever need to update your e-mail address and get the following error message "Your e-mail cannot be your password." you should try changing your password as it may contain groups of characters that are also found in your new e-mail address.

For me the problem was caused by three consecutive letters that were part of both my new e-mail and former password. See an example below:

New e-mail: craigsimpson@domain
Former password: H9son!jk55nb

The letters "son" are common to both e-mail and password, thus the website might stop the uptdate routine.

Just a heads up you may want to use a fake email and a fake old password just in case that still share those letters in common. Especially if you still use that old password for different things.

Hi KillerofGods,

Those are all just examples I came up with, they are all fake. =)
