    After having yahoo email for 9 years, I am done with it, tired of the annoying problems I’ve encountered in the past 9 months – that don’t seem to get solved ever.

    I am switching to gmail, and will shutdown my yahoo account completely in one week

    I want to make sure I change my email info with WordPress so that I get notifications of new posts, subscriptions etc etc in the new gmail account. Is there a SINGLE place to change it all?

    thanks, I want to make sure I do this correctly…

    The blog I need help with is bewitchingkitchen.com.

    Apologies are in order…. just noticed the same question posted a while ago.

    CHanged made in the single spot needed, Personal Settings.

    Sorry…. will be more attentive next time! ;-)

    Bringing this to the top again…

    even though I changed my email yesterday, and the change is there when I go to my settings, today i got an email notification of a pingback in my old email account AND the new one too

    is this expected? when I shutdown my yahoo account and the email bounces back, will affect my interactions with WordPress?

    is there a way to permanently remove that address from my files?

    Did you also make the change at Settings -> General in your blog’s Dashboard?

    Hummmmm…. went there to double check, it says I have a “pending request” for email change….. ?????

    Maybe it will take a while?

    It might, but there’s no harm in saving the change again. It should re-send the confirmation email.

    THanks, I finally got an email to confirm the change of address, and did so.

    I hope from now on it will be fixed.

    Thanks again…
