    Username/email problem

    I have a new email account and have changed my profile accordingly.

    However, this does not change my login email, which is still the old one. How to change this, please?

    Moved to Resolution Centre.

    Your forum profile email has nothing to do with login, which is carried out by Ubuntu One SSO. Go to your Ubuntu One account - https://login.ubuntu.com/ - and change your email address there under manage email addresses. This won't affect the link between your SSO and forum accounts. Emails only have to match on initial login or forum account creation. The link can only be removed by a forum admin.

    Thanks.
    Worked (I think), but not really intuitive.

    Really? SSO = single sign-on. That's the first place I would look to change my login email.

    Well, you tend to get brain overload with TLAs.
