Change Forum Email Address

Change Forum Email Address

I tried this a long time ago and gave up.  Decided to have one more go at it.

Changed the address and got the vierfication email and clicked on the link.

Went back to my settings and it had changed to reflect my choice of address.

Logged off and back on and the old address was back in the settings.

 

What am I doing wrong?

deke58, thanks for posting. 

 

You cannot change the email address for your given username. The only way around this restriction is to create a new username altogether.

Re: Change Forum Email Address

I just tried and the same thing happened.  I got all the way to the link and nothing changed.  I'm going to escalate this to the forum admins for follow-up.

Re: Change Forum Email Address

I think I did that at one time to deke4058 at one time but decided I had all my posts before as deke58 and decided it wasn't worth it. This is the only place I have ever used my Xfinity primary email address.

Will leave well enough alone.
