How to Change Email Address

Post by luckman212 » Wed Dec 28, 2016 3:05 pm

Sorry to message here but when I tried to PM it says I am not authorized. I am trying to update my forum profile's email address but it says I must enter my password before I am able to change it. Ok, so I did this (double checked 3 times) and it insists that the password is incorrect. Just to be 100% sure, I completely logged out and then logged back in to the forums using the exact same password and it works fine (otherwise I would not be able to post this). Can you help? Feel free to delete this post if you can PM me.

You can change your email address through the PWM interface. The easiest way to get there is to logo out of the forum, click "Register" and log in there. There is an "Update Profile" link on the first page where you can change your email.

Thanks for trying but that is not working for me. When I log in to PWM as "luckman212" and then hit Update Profile, it is showing me a completely different email address vs. the one on my forum profile (not even sure where it got that from...) and I am afraid to try changing it lest I get locked out completely. I have just sent an email to samuli _at_ openvpn _dot_ net as instructed on that page so will wait for any further instructions.
