E@H simply WILL NOT attach. I've even reset my computer. It tried to attach, off and on, for about 3 days. Here is what I got on my last attempt:

Should I just keep trying, reinstall BOINC, or...?

Edit: (after reinstalling BOINC)

It's a cross-project account key according to the web-page, and I don't know where else to look.

The account key is the really long string in the e-mail from E@H, these are project specific. Copy and paste this in and be sure there are no extra spaces on either end.

You may have more than one cross-project ID initially. The cross-project IDs will synch up to one cross-project ID after you have results in all the projects you've attached.

Have fun crunching!

I know for a fact I've lost

I know for a fact I've lost the email, do I have to bug the administrators or is there an web page I can use to generate another email.

Einstein is my favorite project, so please help!!! :(

There are a few different ways you can get it. If you look in your cookies for your web browser, there will be one named "auth" that contains your account key. You can also open the project xml file in your boinc directory and find it there. Or you can log out of your account online and then go back to your account page and it will give you a link to click on to get it emailed to you again (you'll only see this link if you are logged out - that's why you don't see it when you come to your account now).

Entered my email address. If I don't post again, assume the problem's been solved.

thanks

Edit: It worked. I really appreciate the help.
