Hi. I have the same problem described in:

When Users changes an emailadress in my Website-Profile, how can I tell JForum about the new emailadress?

You will have to use some custom SSO code. Basically, in the authenticateUser method, you will need to check if the existing jForum information matches your SSO providers info and update the jForum info if needed.

An alternative, but more complex, method is to look at writing your own UserDAO implementation that populates the User object from a combination of the jForum_User table and your SSO user information data.
