    I see that I can't change my email address to a gmail address on this Forum....:nono:

    Any work arounds for this or do I really need to keep another email account open to receive forum emails?

    Somehow my gmail works? :huh: But I do recall seeing something at some point where it wasn't supposed to be.

    We restrict the use of Gmail addresses for registration because of a huge issue with spammers creating fake gmail accounts and using those to register and then spam the forums. That being said, we can override this for certain users who we know are 'real' ;)

    Hells_bells, PM me directly and I'll be happy to handle your 'conversion'...
