Changing email issues

  1. under users > personal settings I am trying to change my email address, when I type in the one I want it to be used I get several errors (pasted below)

    ERROR: That e-mail address is already being used.
    ERROR: The email address is already used.

    How can I get this email address to stick here?

    Regards

    Steve

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

  2. The e-mail address registered with your WordPress.com account is your unique identifier. http://en.support.wordpress.com/email-address/ Two different username accounts cannot share the same email address. http://en.support.wordpress.com/email-address/

    You have two separate email address settings at WordPress.com.

    Blog notifications for the admin (like comment moderation, Likes, new subscriptions, etc) are sent to the email address at Settings -> General in the Dashboard.

    Personal notifications (like comments on your post, subscription emails, and upgrade renewals) are sent to the email address at Users -> Personal Settings in the Dashboard.

    Try changing it at http://wordpress.com/#!/settings/ first.

    If that doesn't work, try Users -> Personal Settings in your blog's Dashboard.

  3. Hi Thanks for the reply

    I have changed the email address in both places (it took ages for the change to take effect) but I am still getting notifications to the old email address, I dont understand why this has not stopped.

    I even deleted that address from gravatar as well but I am still getting mail to it.
