Change of Email Address

  1. how to change the old email address to a a new gmail address and free up the old email address? I need to use the old email address for something else. How long does it take for the changes to take effect? thanks!

    The blog I need help with is sixbombs.wordpress.com.

  2. You can change your email via your account settings, here: https://wordpress.com/settings/account/ You should receive a confirmation email after updating your email address. If you don't receive it within a few hours, let us know in a reply to this thread. Likewise, it could take a while for the old email to become available if you want to use it to register a new account.

    Here is the relevant support doc with more information on this: http://en.support.wordpress.com/email-address/

  6. Hi there,

    It looks like the email address you're trying to change to is a Gmail address. Can you confirm that the confirmation email isn't in your Social tab? WordPress.com emails normally get filtered into the Social tab by default.

  7. hello, the email confirmations is not in the social tab either. any other options for me? should i change it to another yahoo email account?
    appreciate the help. 😊

  8. Hi there,

    It looks like you recently changed the email address on your account to another Yahoo address, and it appears as though you were able to confirm the new address. Can you let me know if this is the case?

    Yes and kokkieh already posted how to do that above.

    You can update your email address in your Account Settings, or in your Personal Settings under Users → Personal Settings in your dashboard.
