Email association problem
I’ve made a topic before (here: https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/changing-my-email-address-doesnt-work?replies=3#post-1174958%23postform), but I still have the same problem.
In the support topics of how to delete an account it says:
“Note: It may take some time for our system to completely release your e-mail address for use with another account. Please be patient, but if the delay seems longer then normal, please contact support for further assistance.”
It’s been 8 months since I tried to change my email address, and the old one is still being associated with my account. The new email address is in all the right fields, both Settings –> Account and Personal settings in the dashboard. It’s getting highly irritating trying to comment on other wordpress blogs and always be prompted to log in – with the email address that shouldn’t have anything to do with my wordpress account anymore.
What’s the e-mail address you want to have under your account?
The email I want to have associated with my account is: [mail removed]

What’s the old address? I’ve just checked and your e-mail is correctly set on your account.
Old address is: [mail removed]
I’ve just checked and your e-mail is correctly set on your account. There’s nothing you need to do now.
Please let us know if you need any further assistance!
I’ve just tried to comment on a wordpress blog again, with my email address (redacted), and it still prompts me to log in to my wordpress account with that address. As you said, there shouldn’t be a problem, but there is. What can I do?
Hi there – Can you please try clearing your browser cache and cookies:
I think your browser is likely storing a cookie for your old email address. I tried to log in with it on my end, and got an ‘error, account does not exist.’
I tried clearing my browser’s cache and cookies, but it didn’t do the trick. I also tried to use another browser, tried to post a comment from another computer, ipod and iPad – neither did work, I still get the same message.
Hi there – Hmm, I see what you mean. I’m checking with our developers about this.
