I bought this game for myself and another copy for a friend.  I would like to buy a third copy for a young family member but I want to use the same email account as my first copy so both copies are linked to my personal email.  Has anyone done that/Is that possible?

Greatest game ever by the way.  I am hopelessly addicted to this game.  Notch deserves every euro/dollar and then some.

I have not done this and I do not know if it is possible. When I bought minecraft for friends I just made an account with their email and I bought it under their account. There is no verification step in the registration process where you have to react on a mail you receive.

Actually just bought a copy for my own "young family member".  Used my email address with no problems.

I bought a second copy, but only one account pops up.  How did you get your two accounts separated?

Resurrecting this old thread.

I have had 2 accounts on the same email but, with the new account system that uses your email address for all Mojang games, I seem to have lost use of one of the accounts.  I have 2 accounts for our own little LAN server and bought them back in 09/2010.

I know that the account system is being worked on and will have some glitches, but will I lose one of my accounts now?
