Is it possible to release the name?

  3. Hi, Just tried and it says that the contact email is the same as my account email- thanks

  4. 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.

    You must be logged in as Admin under the exact same username account that registered the free hosted WordPress.com blog(s) to change the associated email address.

    Try the change here first > http://wordpress.com/#!/settings/

    See Issues Changing your E-mail Address > http://en.support.wordpress.com/email-address/#issues-changing-your-e-mail-address
