Exactly what I thought! Make it "Create new Email Address" or something similar. I 
would also maybe have two grouping areas, like this:Account Wizard

Not sure if Radiobuttons is the best choice here for convenience, but they could 
auto-activate when writing the existing email address / picking the provider. Clarity 
is important when we give either / or choices.
