try the email@example.com email address
I have they exact same problem your having :<
I recently changed my email for many sites but forgot to do so for my FA account which means I'm unable to do a password reset... should I just make a new account or can someone help me change the email? I apparently forgot my password too even though it was the same as my FAF which seems to be working fine.
Also, on an unrelated note, I just saw Summer Wars again and the FA attack reminded me of all the accounts being taken over in the movie :0
I don't remember the email I used when I made my account many years ago this Userpage of mistaree -- Fur Affinity [dot] net is me
So I had a similar issue as several others here and tried to email firstname.lastname@example.org
And I got it sent back with a message saying that the address doesn't exist
Any way of changing the email on my account? I work a field service job, and yahoo just locked my account for having a new location(staying in a hotel). The only option yahoo is giving me, is to verify my email with the email I'm trying to log into. And they're customer service is nonexistent. I changed my account email on the forums, but because of the password resets, I cant do anything on the main page.
Thank you for any assistance,
Yeah same here
I made an account on the forums cause of the same issues as everyone else here. I cannot reset my password on my account Nocran . I tried all the emails I have and two of them are lost in the times of sand, but they are not working either. I sent a mail to accounts[at]furaffinity.net in hopes to get things sorted out. I know hope is bleak and it might be some time as I suspect that they are getting flooded with people having trouble with this.
I cannot remember what email was used since it was quite a few years back...and chances are the email used might be deactivated due to inactivity anyway. Please help, my account is http://www.furaffinity.net/user/lemonapoptarts

I've corrected OP for future reference.

Responses are sent out in the order the emails are received. I can't give you a prediction as to how long you can expect to wait; we've received literally thousands of requests and each one has to be manually verified as coming from the account holder.
Hey, I'm having trouble resetting my password and I can't get a hold of anyone through the email you provided (email@example.com) because it says that that address doesn't exist.
My problem is that I can't access my old email address because I haven't logged into it in so long, and AOL has pretty awful security features. Can someone help me out?
You need to use the firstname.lastname@example.org email address the admin one doesn't work anymore
I managed to access the email address I registered my FA account with. But apparently, Hotmail refuses to receive email from Furaffinity, for reasons which are unexplainable! I whitelisted the address and added it to my contacts, and still nothing! I sent an email to email@example.com from Gmail, but there's been no reply for over 12 hours. I'm hoping at least staff on this forum can take a look at what is happening.
forums.furaffinity.net: Login/Password Problems: - Password reset email not working
I'm having problems with my email, I did recently update my email from firstname.lastname@example.org to email@example.com but when I tried to reset my password it told me that I had the wrong email. I entered the old one and it sent a code to @YAHOO which is a long dead account. I'm wondering if there's anything anyone can do to help me.
You can revive old email accounts, have you tried clicking "forgot password" and seeing what email address it will send the reset to?
I did and got the same issue. It won't send it out randomly.
