This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    
If that email address doesn't work, why do you use it? You don't need your email address to match your OpenID. –  Brad Gilbert Aug 3 '09 at 0:07
    
Whoops...maybe I should check the dates first next time. :/ On second thought, will I get kicked if I vote to close the FAQ as duplicate? *eg* –  Time Traveling Bobby May 31 '11 at 8:47

Register for a gravatar using the same email address you use for your account here. Gravatar is a service to share your avatar across multiple sites (wordpress blogs, SO/SF/SU, some forums). It works by putting your avatar at a URL like http://gravatar.com/avatar/md5 of email

Ahh thats a bad setup, im my case anyways. I use my myspace email, that email does not work anymore however I still use it to login so this is a pain,. Also I tried using gravatar.com and there signup seems to be broke or doesnt ever send email to my working email address –  jasondavis Aug 2 '09 at 23:46

Well, unfortunately, the email address you want to use has to be verified (which is not possible if it doesn't work), so you can either change your email, or go without an avatar. –  Macha Aug 2 '09 at 23:48
