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 had a SO account (named hamen). I'd like to associate an OpenID to that account. When I try to login with OpenID it simply creates a new account. The name is still hamen because OpenID provides it, but it's a brand-new account. I could migrate to this new SO account, but I cannot set my email address because:

Any ideas?
