    We can't rename your account to dr1134 because there is already an account of that name, and looking at the details in it I suspect it might be yours. Is it? If it is, we can restore you to the old account.

    The email in the dr1134 account has a embarqmail domain. Is this still active?

    Yes dr1134 was my old account and I was afraid that the new sso did not link to my original account.

    The email is the embarqmail domain and it is still active

    Although there are alternatives, the usual procedure is to change your SSO primary email to match the old account email address. Once that is done, and this account is disassociated with SSO, your next login should put you back.

    We have to do the disassociation - which I have just done. Log out and in again with that email as preferred in Ubuntu One and you should be fine.
