Thanks. I could only change my own account settings, and I'm afraid 
Simon's old email is no longer valid.

Apologies, I should have been more precise. Could you please remove 
Zoe's name and email from the public ontology summary page, and instead 
let her have admin privileges to edit EFO's metadata. Also could you 
please make sure that her address is included in any communication from 
BioPortal such as the load failure we received recently.

Again, thanks for your assistance, and kind regards.

Paola (and Simon and Zoe)
