    Can't post new threads

    I just logged into the forums after being away for a long time, and changed my email address. I'm not sure which situation is the source, but I can't post new threads anymore. What do I need to do (or have done) to get my account working fully again?

    Thank you

    Hence my confusion - I have not received said verification email. And yes, I did double-check to make sure I entered my email address correctly.

    I've re-activated your account for you.

    There is a period/full-stop (.) in the local part of your new email address. Gmail would ignore this, but not all domains do, I believe. You might want to check that your email provider does the same as gmail - or not as the case may be.

    Thank you!

    As for the period in my email address, I've had that address for several years now, and this is the first time it's been a problem. The provider supports it with no problem.
