I recently redesigned a site and the previous designer put the client's site map account in his own email. He won't let me have access to his account because he has lots of accounts under that email.

What is the best way to handle this?

---start a new account (this doesn't seem like a wise idea due to so many problems with site maps)?

---or can he just change the email?

All he needs to do is delete the site from his account and then you add it to yours .... if you have a good relationship with the previous webmaster ... if not... contact suppoert with your problem and the actually will help you ... may take quite some time, but eventually

It's simpler than that now since there can be multiple people authorized for one site. Just register for the site under your own account. Both of you can be authorized at the same time.

The previous guy is either authenticated via a meta tag or a file in the root directory that starts with 'google...' If you don't want him to be authorized, just delete his file or meta tag and the next time Google checks he'll loose his authorization.
