problem adding account to adwords editor

I have both an adwords and adwords express account. I would like to use adwords editor, but I am unable to add my ad words account. I get the following error (taken from the adword editor log file)

AuthServer User Error CLIENT_EMAIL_INVALID'/>

I have linked my analylitic account and have signed into google account and then to adwords so I know they accounts are linked.

 

 

Could you advise the next steps I can try

You are trying to log into the account with <redacted>@googlemail.com login. But actually, the login granted access to this account is <redacted>@gmail.com (with the same name before @ sign); you could see this in the online interface under Account > Access.

Try using @gmail.com login with Editor.
