    Change Email Address Broken

    Hey guys,

    I have attempted to change my email address, which sends a confirmation email to follow the link etc. When i click the link and AO comes up i get this message;

    This user's primary usergroup is also listed as a secondary group for this user. Please change the primary group or remove the secondary group.
    I'm not sure if this is a know problem or whether it is something specific. Also, not sure if this helps but ive been a member for a number of years and i know a thousand changes have been made since then - maybe worth thinking about 8-)

    Cheers

    I am not sure since the upgrade, but I believe that if you change your e-mail you have to go through a confirmation process almost like re-registering. Have you got a message on your old e-mail account that you haven't answered?

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
