Solved Can we have multiple accounts from one email address?

Post by jamski Mon Nov 02 2009, 14:17

Hello.

We have a new site sponsor who wants to have 3 different log ins so different people can answer specific questions on the forum. However they want to use the same email address for all 3 accounts, and as it is they're saying the address is already registered.

Is there any way round this?

Thanks,

James.

No. I think there's a suggestion similar to this saying to have more than one forum for an account.

Hi,

This is not currently possible, however, they could create 4 email accounts.

One:
Sponsor1@domain.com

Two
Sponsor2@domain.com

Three
Sponsor3@domain.com

Four
Sponsor@domain.com

Sponsor 1,2,3 all forward the messages to sponsor@domain.com

So, it's not possible on forumotion, but can be done.

I've just thought about changing the email address' manually and it seems to work. So they register as sponsor1 with email1. I then change email1 to my address so they can register sponsor2 with email1. I then change this address my my address so they can register sponsor3 with email1. I then change all their accounts back to email1 and hey presto??!!

Just done a quick test and seems to work! Will let you know though.
