DNA tests not loaded to GED Match or not connected to my e-mail?

+6 votes
I rec'd the following message from another "cousin" who wants to confirm DNA on the ODOM side of my family.  He says:

The problem is that your DNA tests are not loaded at GEDMatch.  At least they are not connected to your e-mail.  This needs to be fixed and the only method I know is to reload the tests from ancestry - to do this you will need to log on to GEDMacth and upload your tests. The second problem is that you do not seem to have a GEDMatch ID - the number you are using is a GEDcom number not the ID.  They are different.  Once you do the upload you will be able to get the ID number.

Hi Shereen, I searched for you on Gedmatch using the Gedmatch ID # you have shown on your profile.  That number doesn't exist.  Gedmatch ID #s tend to have six numbers after the letter.  Did you upload your Ancestry.com DNA test?  If so, look again at your information on the Gedmatch home page (once you've logged in).  On the left hand side of the screen, the third box down is titled "Your DNA Resources."  Under that, it shows your test number and the name of the person to whom the kit is for.
