Hi,

I was invited to Boxee with University email account, and I want to change it to a personal account, so that I don't lose access to it when I graduate. I was looking in "Account Settings," but my email address is not an editable field. Please let me know if there is some way to change my address.

Thanks

off topic:

does your school really take away your email? i thought all schools let alumni keep their emails.

Well, they used to be shut off 6 months after you graduated when the school ran its own email. But we just had our mailed changed to Gmail. I work for the IT department, and I vaguely remember them talking about students possibly being able to keep the accounts permanently after graduation.

But, in any case, I'd still like to switch my boxee account to my personal email.
