Remember that it doesn't matter what e-mail address you send your bocks with.
They'll get credited to the e-mail address you have set up in your client's .ini

Right when it's cracked. The e-mail address in your client's .ini file is
encoded into each completed block. This enables multiple clients with multiple
e-mail addresses to use the same buff-out files and still be properly credited.
And it lets you e-mail buff-out files from a different address than the one that
actually cracked the blocks.
