Hi there,
I've recently reconnected Seti but with a different email address. How do I get the 'credit' from that account on to this?

You do not. Accounts cannot be merged, credit from one cannot be moved to another. They're all individual accounts, with the email address being the unique identifier.

If you want to continue crunching with the old account, you can log out here and log in on the old one. Then all you do is disconnect (remove) Seti from BOINC on your computer, and re-attach (Add project) it again using the details from the old account.
