I have two accounts by the name Sefnyr. The old one is with an mail address that i can not recive anymore and i don't remember the code so i can not change the mail. I would like to merge the two accounts or find a way to use the old one again. Can it be done and how?

Regards Jacob L.

Accounts cannot be merged.

If you still have an active machine running under the old account, you can log in using the authenticator code hidden within one of the files.

If not, I'm afraid there's no way to recover the old account without either the authenticator code or the email address and password.

There was a link right on the front page that stated: "Special instructions for SETI@Home Classic participants" that linked to here. Since you have already created a BOINC account, you should follow the last option, "If you are already using BOINC".
