    Still giving me this error

    ERROR: The e-mail address is already used.

  4. Try using GMAIL.com (in caps). But generally the 'in use' error is correct. You have another account?

    You're speaking to them. If you have tried to enter the correct email address and you are being told that the e-mail address is already being used, then you must have opened a second account with that email address.

    Thank you...so how do I find and disable that other account?

    You cannot disable an account here. all I can suggest is that you use http://wordpress.org/support/bb-login.php to enter the correct email address so that you can have details of your other account sent to you.

  9. Many times people have had the weird inuse error, and every time changing capitalization has worked.

    foo@gMail.com or something like that, which you clearly would never use. Or. Since it's gmail, do foo+wp@gmail.com (yeah! Still works)
