Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I am having an issue accepting my Careers invitation. I get the following error:

Hmm, that email already exists on another account. You will need to log out of your existing account and log back in.

I was using a Google OpenID on Stack Overflow that was different from the one I used to authorize Careers but had the same details.

(Google apps accounts migration issue; I won't go into details.)

I tried to rectify the issue by associating my Stack Overflow account with my new Google OpenID, and removing the defunct one; both my StackOverflow and Careers have matching OpenIDs.

However it didn't help and I am still getting that error.
