My son got an iPod Touch for Christmas.  During the setup process I used my AppleID to register it.  Now I'm trying to set up Messaging using his email address (which is different than my AppleID) and it won't take. I get an error message of "Unable to verify email because it is already in use."

Now I setup his Email account first, so that took without an issue.  Could the Email address be causing the conflict?

Any help would be appreciated.
