I read somewhere that if you changed your email address you had to get a new account, so your username etc was locked to your email address.  However according to this FAQ here it is very easy to do but I'm a bit nervous about relying on that.  I want to change my email address as my job is changing a bit and I want to split off the forum emails from my work email.  Has anyone had any success doing this?

I changed my email address a few months ago, and it didn't have any negative (or positive) impact.

Technical your account is changing because your sign-in ID is changing. However you account is not affected. You have to remeber to sign in using the new email address. but once you do and sign in with new address your username  if you didn't change it and everything else you didn't change will remain the same.

Yeah, that's what the FAQ says, but have you done it and has it worked?  Would be nice to know if someone has...

I'm not sure if I have or not. At one time when I started out my email adrees was slightly different then I opened a another email address and let the original stay just as dumping ground for spam. I can't remeber whther I changed  to this or used this to start with.

I'm sure ther are other hear  that could tell you.
