Email address not changing

  1. Guys, I cannot change my email address on here. The new email address does not currently have a wordpress account attached to it so it should be working. However, everytime I change the address I have to go to my new email address and click on the link to confirm the change. It makes me log in AGAIN using my old email address then displays the 'account' screen, where it has my old email address again and underneath this states 'email address could not be updated'. I've tried this several times with the same result.
    I just want to swap my email to a more current address. Surely it's not this hard?

    The blog I need help with is destroywhiteboy.com.

  2. 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.
