Changing my email

  1. I'm trying to change my email in personal settings. I tried logging on with the new email and it did not work so I know that address is not associated with my blog. I tried logging on with the OLD email and was able to go to my blog. I've changed the email address in settings, clicked on the confirmation email I received at my new address, but nothing changes. All my notification comments are going to the old address.
    Blog url: http://pimlaspondering.wordpress.com/

  2. We 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.

  3. In the Users - Personal Settings the new email is "pending." In the Settings - General the new email address is shown with a message saying it needs confirmation.

  4. This thread has been flagged for Staff assistance.

  5. Try saving the change again. This time, instead of clicking the confirmation link, copy and paste it into your browser.
