when does the email address get updated for good ?

    I wanted to update the email address related to my account.
    I have been getting this following message for a few days now :

    “Il y a une modification de votre adresse de contact en cours, en faveur de (email redacted).”

    Meaning : there is an ongoing email update.

    I need the update to be completed in order to delete my site later on. I have no access any more to the previous email address then I need to update it prior to deleting the site.


    The blog I need help with is guidemeetic.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.

    Hi timetief,

    Thanks a lot for your answer, it helped me solve the issue.

    I didn’t realize there were 2 email addresses. I have just changed the one in the settings->general panel and I was able to change the other one (without getting this pending update status).

    And I was able to achieve my goal that was to delete my site.

    Thanks again, I really appreciate it.
