Concerning Email confirmations...

I apologize if this is in the wrong forum, please redirect as needed.

I am recently returning to SWTOR, and went to update my email address. It said it would send an email confirmation to my new email... yet nothing was received.

I know i typed in the correct address... Is there a known glitch for getting this confirmation email? I also need this so I can update my security questions, and add my soft token.

Owen answerd this very well here:

Validations issues usually occur if the email has been used elsewhere on another EA account ( not saying this is your issue but it is usually related to this)

The common solution is to change the email address used to one never associated with an EA/Origin account.

If you happen be using gmail chnage the email on swtor to instead of (its the same email but it is seen as different).

The funny thing about this is that I have one that was originally The origin of is that when Google wanted to launch GMail in the UK, there was already another company using GMail as a trademarked thing in the UK, so Google couldn't just offer "GMail" there. They eventually bought out the rights, but until then, UK people couldn't get addresses.

The trademark dispute I'm still unclear about is the Rocksmith one. When Ubisoft released the original Rocksmith game (imagine Guitar Hero / Rock Band, but using a real guitar instead of a four-button controller), there were a couple of small nobody-bands using that name. The one in Canada was willing to negotiate, but the one in Britain was not, which caused a one-year delay in the European launch of the game. I was never able to find out how it was resolved, but I suspect that Ubi just hit the guy with lawyers until he gave up.
