As a reader, notification emails appear mucked up, or am I just confused?

    This is not about MY blog [I don’t have one] but from blogs I follow by email notification. All the forum and support questions seem to be only for blog owners. What about us readers? *sob*
    ONE: I get emails from one blog twice, one for the eAddress I signed up with first, then duplicates using a new address I subscribed a second time…I think. Anyway, I’m getting two duplicate emails to two different addresses.
    I cannot figure out how to delete/update that first address.
    how do I delete the old subscription email and leave the new one or create a new one? How do I know if I got em all successfully?

    TWO: My Dashboard page, well its not on the dashboard, but it should be, that lists the blogs I follow is incorrect. One blog that is listed, says I get no notifications from that blog. What?? Why is it listed then, and I AM getting those blog updates. Again, I’d like to update the email address that I’m seeing these notification emails being sent to.
    how do I view what email address is being used for each blog, that doesn’t seem to display.

    THREE: Is there a central place where I can manage the notification email addresses? Is there a way to use different email addresses for notifications from specific WordPress blogs? I’m kinda thinking this centralized WordPress profile/notification/email address makes it very hard to break down and separate how/where I want to receive emails depending on the subject matter – or maybe I just don’t get it.
    is there a way to direct these subscribed emails to different email addresses? Is the login address different from the subscription address? I can’t see how I subscribed, or what email addresses I used, or what the present situation is – though I am getting emails.
    I’m also concerned that Gravatar is tied into this -as changing my WordPress login address also changes Gravatar’s.

    Thanks for any help.

    1. There will be either an Unsubscribe or Manage Subscriptions link at the bottom of each email, you can use that for the emails received at the undesired address.

    2. You do have a WordPress.com account, so subscribed blogs which you are not receiving emails for will still appear in the Reader: http://wordpress.com/#!/read/

    3. Your account’s email address is set via: http://wordpress.com/#!/settings/
