Your going to love this. You don't need to have an account code to change your e-mail address. If you go to the main STO page, log in, and then click My Account at the top of the page, there is an option to change your e-mail address without verification.

Because Cryptic decided to opt everyone in, they had to leave a way to fix the very problem you are describing. Therefore, they made this feature utterly useless in protecting anything. In fact, it actually helps account theifs. Now if someone gets access to your long deleted e-mail account, or they hack into the one you have notifications sent to, they can permanently steal your account away by changing it to their e-mail, locking you out and gaining all your information and there is nothing you can do about it. Forget simply emptying your bank account, now they have a way to take your characters for their own.

Amazing! You would be best to disable this thing on your account as fast as possible.
