Not able to change email address

  1. I'd like to change the e-mail account that is listed under my wordpress profile to an e-mail account that I used on a previous wordpress blog that has since been deleted. Is this possible?

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

  2. If that email account is still attached to an older wordpress.com account you won't be able to as an email address can only be associated with one username account. Understand: you deleted the old blog, but not the wordpress.com username account.

    You'll need to log in to the old account (provided you still have the login details) and change it's email account to something different (you can create a throwaway email address on a free webmail provider like gmail or yahoo for that purpose). Only then will you be able to assign the old email address to your current username account.

  3. That worked great! Thanks for your help.
