You can update your details by going to your profile page and enter a new email.
we can't send you another password. I'd recommend the following: Update your email address, then log out and visit the login page. There's a "I forgot my password" link. Click it and it should be send to your new email.

Except you need the passwd to change the email, even in the profile page? Looks like a chicken and egg problem. :(

Any other thoughts?

Yes.
PM me, tell me the email you want, I'll change it and notify you.
I'd didn't know that you need the password for changing the email. For changing the password, ok, but this is a bit weird.
