Can I Change the Email Address on my Account?

Post by BobH »

If so, how?

I'm doing some housecleaning, getting rid of email addresses from old ISPs and moving to domains that I control. Future re-platforming and ISP changes will be much easier. To that end, I was wondering how one goes about changing the email address one used when registering.

Go to your account settings
Enter the new email address there and click Submit.
You should receive an email at that address with a link to confirm the change.
Best wishes,
Hans

I was just going to say that as well,

but also…. just my 2 cents, I would think twice about doing that if I was you, Bob. As they say – if it `aint broke, don’t break it – things associated with log-in, confirmations, notifications, etc. have been a bit temperamental in recent years, not just here, everywhere, a bit scary sometimes… Still, I expect ypu can get in touch if somethiing goes wrong and you have any problems logging in.
