Steps to reproduce:

My old password does not matched the newly required 8 character length. Thus, change is required before login. However, at the very same time, my old email become invalid (the reason for login). 

Therefore, we have Catch 22 - in order to change email, one needs to log in using new password. However, to log in, one need email working due to password required changes. 

Actual results:

Not possible to log on or deliver changed password

Expected results:

The system should allow first log on using old password and then require the change. The system should not assume that the old email is working in case of forced password delivery AND valid old credentials.
