    You can change your email address easily. Click on the 'contact details' link in your account (the little man in the top right corner) and change it through there.

    I tried that and it wouldn't work for me.
    During the changeover, I got 'confused' and used a different username (steamd) and my now usual email address. Once I had sorted myself out, I reverted to my old user name (deverett) and wanted my new email address but the error message said that my new email address was already in use and wouldn't let me use it.

    So, Dave. You want to end up with the email that is in the steamd account. Then get rid of steamd.

    If that is correct, I'll merge and fix for you.

    That's correct, Angie. Please remove steamd and use that email for deverett.

    Thanks

    I forgot to confirm that the merge is completed, and the email you want is now in your deverett account.
