When I register for hubpages, why do I have to input my email password? It appears fishy. Nobody, in any occasion, or for any reason should ask one's email password.
I think I need an explanation. Anyone?
why are you using the same password for hubpages as for your email?
That's your own doing, not HubPages....
who told you that I use the same password for both hub and my email?
This is the only explanation a sane person can come up with after reading your post
You are quite right...nobody should ask one's email password.
Hubpages doesn't ask you to do this... at least not the hubpages at http://hubpages.com
Maybe you misinterpreted something.
"Email and password" means your email and your desired password that you want to use to access the site NOT your email and email password...
Actually a friend of mine joined up on the weekend and got asked for her email password as well. She has a Hotmail account. She put it in and it exported all of her email contacts in a list and you were given the option of sending them a email telling them about your new HubPages account. She just unticked them all. You're best be would be to send HubPages an email seeing if you can skip this step.
Maybe it's a Hotmail thing? I didn't get that request when I signed up, but then I'm using an ISP addy, not a free online account.
I didn't get anything like that, either. I had to supply a valid e-mail but that's not what I use to log in. It never asked for my e-mail password and it never tried to import anything...I used a yahoo! e-mail but I don't know what difference that would make.
That is only so hubpages can email your contact list, tell them you have signed up and ask them if they want to join. You do not have to take that option
It's about 6 months old, and the step can be skipped. It is completely optional.
If you signed up before this was available and missed out on the opportunity to email all your friends and contacts a HubPages invitation, you can still do it. Some of the messaging on the page may be a little off though, since it was intended to only be used by new signups.

This is probably a silly question that has been answered before, but I can't seem to find the answer in the FAQ, learning centre or forums: how do I change the email address associated with my account? I recently got married and am going through the tedious process of changing my name/contact...
