I had to close my former email address' account due to to an overwhelming amount of spam, but now I do not receive any mail from the projects I participate in. Is there someway I can change my email address with the projects without losing credit to the stats aggregators such as BoincStats?

After Logging in to BoincStats, go to: Main account page. Edit your account to reflect the email address you wish to use on your projects. BAM will update your projects within a day or two depending on the project.

Only if you're using the account manager. Otherwise, you'll have to do it manually... Which is a great reason to use the account manager, even if you don't attach it to your BOINC Manager or use the other functions.

Even if you change your email address manually, it should all sync up eventually on your CPID although non-active projects can get messed up during an email change. As long as they aren't retired, you can usually fix this by attaching them temporarily (don't have to do work, just need to update one common host in the host list to spread the new CPID across projects).

Thank you. I've had to do this once before and I lost my Predictor credits that time, now I have a handful of projects that have gone idle or shut down completely:

ABC
DNA
Docking
eOn
QMC
SIMAP
Spinhenge
Superlink

So I guess I'll leave well enough alone. Thanks for your input.

It won't save you now, but if you sign up for the account manager, you can merge stats for any future projects that retire.

I did use BAM for a little while, but having Intel and PPC Macs, x86 Linux, and x86 Windows I can't run all projects on all CPUs. Unless BAM's settings have been refined in that regard.

Not sure what you mean, BAM is platform independent. If you're talking about managing different projects for different groups of hosts, there's a Group function that might help you with that. But, even having your projects attached to BAM will help you with any future email changes, and prevent lost credit from retired projects... Did you by chance have the retired project(s) in question attached to BAM? If so, check under the BOINCstats>Sync retired projects page to see if you can recover that lost credit.
