Hello,

If you are getting an invalid message you won't be able to use it. There are some emails that are blocked such as info@ admin@ Spam@

It might have something to do with the recent security update. http://help.forumotion.com/t97434-optimising-security-of-personal-data-on-forumotion-forums

The reason why were nnot qute grasping the situation is because it's working for us.

If this is exactly what is happening, I will be able to give u a few suggestions.

Access users' account on the Admin panel > Look at current email box - will have for example, name@hotmail.com > when u select the box, it disappears > you type a new email in hit save and go back to the profile.

If this is the situation;
Please clear the cache & cookies of your browser
Recheck - Im sure this won't change anything however, having a clear cache is good because some data may have changed and the cookie didnt get the full change.
Resync you forum to the DataBase. Admin panel >> general > Forum/config > Misc options* > Tick the box near the resync & save.
Now please re-try, and inform us of the results.
