THE PROBLEM STARTED WHEN I CREATED A TEMPORARY EMAIL ADDRESS AND MUST MISTAKENLY DESIGNATED THAT TEMPORARY ADDRESS AS MY MAIN ADDRESS.SORRY, DONT WANT TO PAY $42 FOR THE REMOTE TECH SUPPORT
Email technician: Martin, Network Engineer replied 2 years ago

That's okay but you will require remote assistance to get this issue resolved unless you can give me some more information.

Are you currently logged into your temporary address?

Do you know your main account's password?
