Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I log into SE with my Google Mail account, and I regularly get updates of the form "2 new items in your Stack Exchange inbox" to that account. That's great.

However, when I try to subscribe to a tag I get the following:

enter image description here

Which would be great - except that's not my email address - mine is not (missing 't') - my question is, how do I change the address that the superscription is going to? (I'm presuming I was asked for it once and mistyped it...)

EDIT- Okay - building on hjpotter's answer (which sent me in the right direction but wasn't the key thing)

The problem was that I only appeared to have an 'edit' tap on my stackoverflow profile - all other profiles were 'slaved'(?) to that one...

Here I assume. (Profile page --> edit) By default the email field there is set to the one used for the OpenID login but maybe you changed it by mistake at some point. – Shadow Wizard May 23 '13 at 21:59 ? – Mat May 24 '13 at 6:10

Try these steps:

  1. Go to Stack Exchange website and login.
  2. Open your user profile page. it should be this one.
  3. Click on subscriptions tab.
  4. There should be a link named "manage". Click on it. You'll be presented with a new page where you can edit the email address.
