Personal Settings - Changing Email Problems

    I am trying to change my email in personal settings. I received the email that is asking me to confirm the change by clicking on this link. I go through the process but still the email won't change. The account that I signed up with has since been deleted and I am not longer receiving email when someone responds to my posts. Why won't the email change? And what I can be done to fix this?

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

    Hi can someone please help me?? Why can't we contact support directly this is so stupid.

  3. I have the same problem with my blogs, senmcglinn.wordpress.com and sensday.wordpress.com. I have made the change, and the new email appears in both the "user" and "account" interfaces, but the notifications still go to the old address.

  4. Hello there,
    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.

  5. Thanks, this one was the answer:
    "Blog notifications for the admin .... are sent to the email address at Settings -> General in the Dashboard."
    And for anyone who is looking for "settings" - it's the last thing on the left hand side of the dashboard.

  6. Hooray! I'm glad we were able to resolve this.
