I think you have to convert your Spore to Origin because Online Mode only works with Origin I think. I had the CD and talked to the Customer Support of EA so they transfered my CD Spore Game to Origin for free. After that Spore Online worked. Here some more information why your Spore Login won't work:

Hi! You need to redeem your game as a Origin game. Contact the EA Support at and provide the infos regarding your game CD or Steam purchase.

That's weird, I have Spore on Steam and no trouble getting online.

Having forgotten your EA Account Password must be the cause of your problems. I got it on Steam after having played it long ago & logging into my EA Account, that to my surprise still existed, got me access to all my Spore Stuff... that to my surprise still existed... though I have to admit my old Creations of long ago, especially my Star Screamer, have not aged gracefully. :P
