two email addresses?

Postby Good Dog » Fri Sep 03, 2010 11:53 am

I registered myself and tried to register my wife. The site says I have to have a seperate email address for her. This is just dumb and definately not user friendly.

This is necessary to prevent instances of one email address setting up multiple fake accounts. Unfortunately, it does affect the honest user occasionally. Email addresses are free and readily available at places like Yahoo, Google, MSN and a wide variety of other sites should you wish to obtain one. Even though this measure may affect a user with good intentions, it is a necessary step to maintain the integrity of the site and the data we offer to the users.

With Gmail you can have it automatically forward the emails to another account. So set one up for your wife's Opencaching account and the setup a rule to forward it to your main account. Email me through my profile if you need help.
