"The e-mail address is already used" when I update my profile.

  1. I changed the email address in my Settings, got the confirmation email and confirmed it. Then I noticed that the email on my profile was still my old one, but when I try to change it, it protests that "The e-mail address is already used."

    Any ideas?

    The blog I need help with is thegreatestconversation.wordpress.com.

  2. I had a freak one in a million chance happen when I changed email addresses a while back. When I went to register my new email on paypal it was already used. I contacted Yahoo they said it was used, deleted and then claimed by me. I contacted paypal and asked them to contact this person to update their account with new valid email info. They did so but the person may be dead for all I know. I finally changed my email again.
