need help changing email address

  1. Why can't I change my email address? Under my username I have two blogs. Both are set up with an old email address. I need to change both to my new one so I can get the updates. When I try to do so, it tells me that the email address is already in use. I don't know how that is possible, and I also don't understand why that matters. Can you please help?

    The blog I need help with is iwilleatitforyou.wordpress.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.

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

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

  3. Yes. My email is correct under Settings (under General). It's wrong under Personal Settings (under Users). That is where I continue to get an error telling me the email address is already in use.

  4. What are you trying to change the email address to?
