Bitbucket Account Email Address Change Effect on Existing Commits

Hi, we are in the process of changing our email addresses across our organisation.

From what I can see this will affect the existing commits we have in Bitbucket server.

So we have commits made under and BB links this to Jane Blogg's account. However when we update Jane's email address to then the old commits will no longer to Jane's BB account, and only new commits made with will be linked to her account.

Is my understanding correct?

Is there a way to link both commits with the old email and new email address with Jane's account?

Hi @Dalectric, did you find any issue doing this?

The only real thing was that the user with old email address changed from a linked user account with their full name and icon (e,g. Joe Bloggs) to just their username (e.g. joebloggs) with no link or icon.
