    Last few days I have been getting emails from ea for forgot my password. I never requested them, My uo hubby had the email and the password for account management so there was no need for him to request the forgot passward email.wouldnt have done him any.good anyways since he would have to have the email password So ea and uohubby are the only ones who had that email account.
    Im sitting here thinking ok what foolish thing did I do that I would usually never do. I never download anything expect UO, vent,and icq. This week I downloaded the orgin download site from ea logged in with my email, and password. today i checked the profile showed my email to others.
    first thing I did was remove orgin from my computer, made a new email addy, and went here https://www.ea.com/profile/login to edit my email. I had to go to both old and new email for verifaction of the email change.
    Was my mistake for not checking things out when I logged into Orgin. once this migration is over, and things are fixed. If I have to ill redownload orgin. Since its beta im hoping I wont have to. I just want all of you to beware of this, and what you can do if you start getting forgot my password emails.

    I wonder if your problems spring from downloading the Origin client. Not sure why you would do that if you only play UO, but perhaps you or someone else in your house plays other EA games and you were forced into downloading it.

    Anyway, did you register to use the Origin forums and if yes, did you perhaps accidentally click on one of your UO account names to use it as your default persona and did you also select an option to display your e-mail address? Or could someone else in your house have set these options for you, since that site tends to want to leave you logged in unless you tell it otherwise, even if you've closed your browser multiple times? If yes, maybe someone stumbled across your persona by using the search option for the Origin forums and putting two and two together (i.e., a UO account name and a potential EA Account name vis-a-vis your e-mail address), and is trying to hack their way into your EA Account.

    Perhaps log on at the Origin site and check what your options are for using the Origin forums and change them to use a new made-up persona and not display your e-mail address.

    When you log into the ea website this is on top
    Important Notice: In the coming months your EA Account and profile will be upgraded to a new Origin™ Account. Your identity, order history and preferences will remain unchanged and we will notify you via email when this transition takes place. Learn more about Origin™ Electronic Arts
    I clicked on click here ( i didnt add it here) and where it I saw client download I downloaded it, and you use your account management email and password to log in. I linked my accounts but never set up one as a persona. Right now I dont have a persona just a ea id. I figured I would try and see if i could set it up there. I didn't get any emails for forgot password for any of my uo accounts. just ones for my email username for ea account management.

    Seeing all the problems everyones having I reactived 2 accounts for 6 months which werent due to be activated til Oct 3rd and oct 19th. If I waited my luck my places would fall lol. My main account is set up always be billed every 6 months. Now no worries til March by then hopefully all this will be all worked out.
    LOL forced to download it NAH !!!!

    First time someone downloaded something on my computer this is what I said

    What the Fking hell dumbazz did I say you can download that crap on my computer. Do I go on your fricking computer, and download crap on it? NO I dont, so dont be downloading your crap on my piece dumbazz. So now my sis wont touch my computer at all.
    The main reason I changed everything was do to hackers. I also deleted the old email.
