Is there any way to change my e-mail to something that's more reliable in case of a stupid admin (me) or my server going down? I would like to change it to a gmail account.
Second question would be anyone want to help me setup my mail on a linux box :)
I think setting up a challenge phrase or something would be a bit easier to manage.
From online banks, paypal, to just about every affiliate program I've seen, they all allow you to update your email address using on online form once you've logged into your account.
I wonder why they would make it so different for adsense.
Probably because the email address is also the login for AdSense. There you can change password, billing address, anything.
That's no different than PayPal or many other financial institutions.
It still doesn't explain why the extra measures are taken for this particular service (although, I guess Google would be the only ones that could explain that).
For what it's worth, when I requested the change it was late on a Friday afternoon (and it was imperative that I could change the account asap), and even though it took a couple of e-mails from both ends to get us singing off the same song sheet, the responses from Google (Phoebe) were fast, courteous and they got the job done in no time at all.
I still get all warm and fuzzy when I think back to the encounter....
