How do you change a BT ID to a different email address without getting an error message? I have been trying for several days now and continually get the following error (pic attached). The new email address I am using is a gmail address but I don't see why this is a problem. I enter the new BT ID, I then get an email to the new gmail address and when I click on the link it gives me the same result. I have done this on multiple occasions over the last week. Suggestions appreciated. Thank you
Unfortunately it appears that no one can help. Which would be the best department within BT to contact?
Thanks, a nice idea, but it looks like they're a bit short staffed...Anyway, I've found a workaround. So I'm changing to a gmail address for my BT id. I would set up an email for example firstname.lastname@example.org (the +bt bit is to distinguish it if I start getting spam following any sort of data breach or misuse). This seems acceptable when you enter it initially as it sends an email to that address with a link to verify. Unfortunately you then get the error message as above. I removed the +bt bit and it now works. Strange why the initial email suggests the + in the address is OK, but then doesn't actually allow it.
Any ideas why? Thanks
It might be acceptable as a gmail address but the + sign will be an illegal character for a BTID user name.
