Hi,
I started using Seti@home in August 2006.
I ran it on my home computer and my work computer for many years.

I then lost touch with the project for a while.
Signed up again yesterday.
Thing is, I've had to register with a new email address as my old one is now defunct.
Is there a way to get my old account credits listed to my new account?

It is not possible to join two (BOINC) accounts together, but it is possible to use a "dead" email account, get SETI running, then change the email address to a current one. I don't think you can have two accounts using the same email address.

I had the very same problem and had to register a new account.
It is okay though; the thing we're after is true contribution to science so just start all over again. :)
