Either a username or the email in the form of username AT example DOT com would be helpful. We feel your pain but we cannot do anything constructive without at least a couple of hints.

Help! I have forgotten my User Name. If I try to re-register, it says that my email address is still in use. Can someone send me some help at my email address?

When I try to login I repeatedly get this message:
You exceeded to maximum number of login attempts. In addition to your username and password you now also have to solve the CATCHA below.

This keeps looping back each time I attempt to login - how do I clear this? I also attempted to "register" but this didn't work either. I recently moved everything from an old Win XP desktop to a new Win 8.1 machine and am tryring get get everything back the way it was. Couldn't find any other way to request "help". Username is: Peter P. Schifferli, latest password attempt was , eMail is Pschiffe AT aol DOT com

Please help and thank you!

Now getting "The username you entered is already in use, please select an alternative." Will try Pschiffe.

You exceeded the maximum allowed number of login attempts. In addition to your username and password you now also have to solve the CAPTCHA below.

It will have to wait until I get home (1 hr and 1/2) but would you mind if I took over your account for a couple of minutes?

Hi again LoudNoise, I think I got it working now, apparently I failed to "activate" the newest password but I corrected that and was just now finally able to login again and update my profile signature! Many thanks for your efforts.

I'm having the same problem. Is there someone I could contact without publicly displaying my email address (even munged, as the OP wisely did)?

Well, similar to the OP, I don't recall my username. When I try to retrieve my pword, I give it my email addy and it says
Information
The e-mail/username information submitted could not be found.


I don't KNOW my username. But when I try to register anew, using the same email, it says

The entered e-mail address is already in use.

Please note that you will need to enter a valid e-mail address before your account is activated. You will receive an e-mail at the address you provide that contains an account activation link.


my email handle is xxxxxxxxx (all one "word"), and it's "at" xxxxxxx DOT com.

Thanks!

I've re-acivated your acct.
You might like to try "Michael11" as your user name. (No quotes.)

Seems like you've been away for a while?

Indeed ... Seamonkey normally works well :) , and I lack the expertise to be much of a helper to fellow semi-literates :) .
