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 joe.reddington@gmail.com not joe.reddingon@gmail.com (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...


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.
