I have helped several different orgs to set up new accounts on RH, and I usually work with them to create a sub account to provide me with admin access to continue helping as needed. Your docs clearly explain how to set up a sub-account: https://support.reclaimhosting.com/hc/en-us/articles/1500007047642-Creating-a-Sub-account-within-the-Client-Area
However, the sub-account signup prevents me from using the same email address I have previously used on the RH platform, with this error msg:
A user already exists with that email address
While I can workaround this issue (by inserting extra periods in my Gmail address, etc.), is there a legitimate way for me to reuse my existing email address?
Hello! Unfortunately, this is a limitation of our client portal system and the software it runs. I would either do as you suggested by inserting extra periods into your Gmail address, or by using Gmail’s + delimiter to make aliases.
If you are unfamiliar, you can take a Gmail address (like firstname.lastname@example.org) and add a plus symbol and text before that @ to make on the fly aliases (like email@example.com). Email sent to firstname.lastname@example.org will get sent to the email@example.com account. I frequently use this for various services, and it will work here with our client portal as well as a workaround.
Thanks for this helpful Gmail delimiter suggestion. Consider adding it to your documentation page for others, too.
