Seun: Unable To Change Email Address by BizBooks(m): 1:01pm On Jul 05, 2012
@Seun,

I have two issues:

1. I logged on to NL today and saw the following message:
"You have 1 new Nairaland PM. Please check your e-mail account now."
Since I have closed my original NL email account, how do I check the PM?

2. I tried to change my email address on NL but it will not let me. Here's what I did:

* Clicked on "Edit Profile"
* Clicked on "Change Email"
* Entered the new email address and confirmed it

Here's where the problem starts. At this point, I can only see a "Change Password" button.
No button to click to confirm the email change. I clicked the "Change Password" button and
got the following message: "You need to verify your new email address before it is changed
Continue editing your profile". I clicked the "Continue Editing Your Profile" link and it
took me right back to the "Edit Profile" page.

@Seun try and make life more easy for mobile phone users in Terms of registration. Registering on nairaland with opera or ucweb is almost impossible and I believe is the major reason why guest view is always on the increase. Try registering with a Nokia mobile phone and see what am talking about(nokia c3 in particular). That is where yahoo mail is loosing it entirely to gmail due to the ease gmail account can be registered whether on mobile or Whatever. Just a suggesting though. I have account already and I can even register 1 million with my pc if I want to. Just feeling for those using Nokia and doesn't have complete access to pc

In also don't like the fact that messages are sent to one's email and there's no copy in one's nairaland account. I was alerted that i have two new messages from someone but the problem is that the email it was sent to is no longer active and there's no where i can read the email. It could be someone trying to give me 10 million, who knows. Seun, please look into leaving a copy of any message on nairaland. Thanks.

Today, I saw this:

You have 2 new Nairaland PMs. Please check your e-mail account now.

Unfortunately, there is no way I can access this PMs as my NL email address is no longer
active. As afam4eva suggested, users should be able to read their PMs directly on NL instead
of their email inboxes. As you may know, in registering for forums, most people use a
dispensable email address which they rarely check if ever.

... Yeah having a PM here on nairaland would have been better but I think why email was chosen is because of scam and spam. So that all spam and scam will get directed to our emails. And the plan is really working well. My email was bombarded with spam & irrelevant nairaland updates until I withdrew my real email from nairaland and replaced with an irrelevant one. If nairaland had a Pm, the only message you would receive daily is SPAM/scam. Just searching for another forum where there is better privacy in private chatting but can't find any because nairaland is already on top. Some guys are busy presently recording all nairaland deficiencies and hoping to pounce and exploit on it someday when the right time comes. Naijapals & nigerianbestforum are not smilling. Operation overtake nairaland lol but can never be like nairaland!

^most of your post sounds unnecessarily bogus.


Nairaland USED to have a pm function which worked fine- did anyone say they were receiving spam via pm because that's news to me.
Re: Seun: Unable To Change Email Address by tpia5: 3:32pm On Jul 12, 2012
@ poster


Doesnt matter even if you accessed your email the pm was sent to.

There'll be nothing there.

Advertisers and yahoo yahoo boys used to bombard people nairaland account with span that's why it was discontinued in the old nairaland.

Ordinary members were allowed to send messaged then.

Where is Seun?
Re: Seun: Unable To Change Email Address by Seun(m): 11:44pm On May 12, 2013
If you post your email address on a public thread, you will be spammed. It has little to do with the email you signed up with.

I just want to change my previous email to a new one but that cannot be done because it keeps saying "You need to verify your new email address before it is changed. Continue editing your profile"

If you are referring to the "Unable to Change Email Address" issue, I think it has been resolved. I was able to
change my NL email address a few weeks ago.
