I need to change the email address associated with my Username. I used my work email address and no longer work for the company or have access to that email account. I could register with a new name but if an Administrator could change the addres for me I could just reset my password. Can this be done?

You can do it yourself. Go to 'User Control Panel' from the link on the right, under 'mozillazine'.

Regards,

Dave.

@amrad, the fact they are posting as a Guest likely means they don't have the ability to log in...

Exactly. CEI is not m Username - I can't use that to post this. My username is charles_i and my password is so old that it's not 6 characters so it probably has expired.

I found a user ID of charles_i. Please confirm the domain of the old email address and the new email address you wish to use. Don't post it as full email address but in the format "charles_1 AT whatever DOT com".

Alternatively, there were only two posts against that old account, both from four years ago. You could just create a new ID if you wish and could mark the old account as deactivated.

Please post again the OLD email address as your last two posts seem to have mixed things up.

My apologoies, I figured it out. It was going to a different email address than those two so I reset the password. It would be nice to reset password using either the username or the email address.

If a username alone is enough to reset password, *anyone* can reset password for any registered user... :-k

IMO it's better to require some means to verify that the user requesting the password reset is the user whose account it is.
