Can't change email

★★★ Newbie

I'm not able to change the email associated with my Origin account.  I keep getting an error on the email field that reads " ID contains a prohibited word or character".  Origin ID isn't being changed and I've tried 3 different email addresses all getting the same error.

Any ideas??

Same here, I believe the verification process for the emails is probably catching the username verifications and not allowing us to enter a @ and . (dot)

Same here, ^ It seems like a lot of hassle to go through to change a simple e mail address, I guess I will just wait till they realize the problem and make a simple fix.
