I have a gmail and a google email ( And I want to be able to login to Stackoverflow using either of them.

I authenticated with my gmail account. I tried add more logins using my own openID URL It will redirect to Google's internal authentication page. But after the standard authorization page, I see an error reads:

Unable to log in with your OpenID provider: Error occurred while sending a direct message or getting the response.

I can live with only logging in with my gmail account. But it would be really nice if I can use either of them to authenticate.

It's been a day since this happened. Have you tried adding the login again? – Robert Harvey Oct 27 '12 at 0:09
@RobertHarvey I still have the same error. It appears more a bug than lack of feature to me. – wyz Oct 29 '12 at 22:31
