Hi Paul,

The Profile tool doesn't look at the Account for any information. So the info in the Profile and the Account quickly gets out of sync. The email address  you add to the Profile isn't checked when sending emails either, only the one in the Account is.

I would highly recommend adding Profile2 to your installation if possible, as it overcomes these limitations (email changes are synced and can only be changed if the system permits it, a user's name comes from Account).

For the Account tool, this was easy--I was able to uncheck the "usr.upd.own" options in the realm settings. However, I can't find corresponding way to restrict e-mail address changes in the Profile tool. Actually, I couldn't find any realm settings for the Profile tool at all. Are there none? Or is there someplace else I need to look for those?
