This problem has been annoying me for months after moving from the UK to Australia, then I finally found a workaround. If you have a Gmail account (it might work for other email providers as well) and the first part of your email address is dvided by a dot, then you can remove the dot and the email is still valid e.g. firstname.lastname(at)gmail.com works the same as firstnamelastname (at)gmail.com (note - I can't use the @ symbol here due to restrictions with posting). Therefore you can sign up to Paypal with a "different" email address and still get all the emails to your account. It's worth sending a test email to yourself to make sure it works. Hope this helps!
