    Sorry in advance if this has been addressed but I'm at work and I can't really browse around...

    I'm curious if I could change my email address. I signed up using a username not knowing it would be my email address. I'm aware you can add up to 5 email addresses however I'm on a trail and I have that for 4 months and I am gonna pay for the service once it expires however when I try and add an email address they want to charge my card and I don't want it to be charged until the 4 month trial is over.

    Has anyone added an email address without being charged or anything along those lines?

    Thanks in advance.

    no, you have to pay
    youre trying to add an email only account, which costs money

    cancel the trial, and start a new one with a different user name
    i did, works fine, even with the same card

    I think the 5 email addresses apply to the "family pack", please correct me if I am wrong?

    Well the thing is if I cancel I'll go back to a 2 month trial and it'll just be a hassle to re-upload everything. I guess I'll just wait till the end of the trial and let them charge me then and hope the email address is still available...


    I believe you can add 5. Doesn't matter I just want to add 1 anyway...

    You have to create a new account, you can't change an email address that's already created...

    So in essence you can start a new "trial" membership but you're creating a new account..

    Aliases (additional email addresses) are a full package only feature!
    Means you'll either have to cough up $99 or get a new 60day trial!

    Nope. Must start a brand new account

    I wanted to change my email and asked them the same question but was told to start a new one

    So, I did. Oh well
