Unable to update my email address

    WordPress is not allowing me to update my email address to the one I currently use. It tells me that that email address is in use. I know it’s in use because it’s MY email address. Also, I was told that I would receive an email at my current address but so far nothing has come through.

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



    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.

    If you have succeeded in getting that far but have no received an email confirmation please check your email client spam/junk mail filter. I have tagged this thread for a Staff follow-up.



    Hi there,

    I’m going to move this to a support ticket, since we will need to discuss your various email addresses.
