    Need to change emails

    Hey Mods?

    Due to my coming retirement I logged into settings to change my email address from my work to personal email address when I tried to save I got this following response from the system:

    The administrator has banned your email address. You will need to change your email address in order to continue. If you think this is done in error, please click here to contact the administrator..

    When I did the click "here" it gave me information about resetting user name or resting password. I don't need to do either of those

    So what's up? why won't it let me change my email?

    It appears you're trying to use an aol address? AOL is banned on the site because they report us as spammers.

    Please use the "Contact Us" button at the very bottom to email me and we'll find a way to fix this. If you are using an aol address, you'll probably need to use something different. Gmail works well.

    OK thank for the explanation I do have a gmail account but rarely use it. I've been thinking of moving away from AOL as they have done several things I don't like, but it's confortable as I have been using the aol account since about 1985, My cell phone number has been the same since 1988. I'm kind of a dinosaur

    I just changed my email to my gmail account now it won't let me go to different threads Yellow banner at top of page says I have not confirmed my new email address. is correct. sorry for adding to your work load

    Answer-Man, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:
    1.Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
    2.If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.

    I just fixed it. Sometimes the software does stupid things when a member changes their email address.

    Let me know if you have any more issues.
