I've seen this question regarding setting an account for a GitHub org.

Do you support having an account for the GitHub org, and a separate individual user account?

I'd like to be able to give team members from the GitHub org access to an org AppVeyor account, but I don't want them to have access to my other projects. I also don't want to rename my individual account.

Thanks in advance!

    You can just create a new AppVeyor account, set it's name to GitHub org name and add only required projects into it.

    Would I still be able to login using my GitHub account and switch between my AV org and personal projects?

    Sure, you can be a member of multiple account and select account on "Sign in" page.

    I just tried to create a new account called T4MVC to match our GitHub org, but it won't let me use the same email address as my personal account:

    AppVeyor user with specified email already exists.

    Use any other email to create it, then add your email to "collaborators" for that account. After that you'll be able to manage both accounts with one email.

    One final question - I'm getting each email twice from AppVeyor now. Is it safe for me to delete my second account I used to create the R4MVC account?

    I've made the GitHub owners team admins in AppVeyor, so I guess I can login to the using just my GitHub creds and not email address I used to create the account?

    You don't necessary need to delete it - you can just change its notifications preferences on Profile page.
