    Question Ubuntu Forums Old Account

    I setup my account with my UbuntuOne, but I don't see my problem linked, and I didn't read about it taking time.
    I'm fairly certain I'm using the same email account. If I change my primary on UbuntuOne will that take affect and link them if I log out and back in?
    Did a quick search and didn't see an answer to my question, so sorry for dups.
    Thank you,
    Nasair

    Re: Ubuntu Forums Old Account

    I had a similar problem whereby I somehow had a brand new account created through signing in with my Ubuntu SSO.

    I e-mailed the forum admins for support and got told to change the preferred e-mail address in the Ubuntu SSO settings at http://login.ubuntu.com to my old e-mail (I initially signed up with) It appears that was the reason I had a new account created. After making my old e-mail the preferred address and tried signing in again, I was able to access my old account again... in which I clicked "Settings" at the top to change to my 'newer' primary e-mail address, and then updated Ubuntu SSO. Now it signs in with the correct e-mail.
