I want to change the email address that I am using to sign in using the Stack Exchange. I tried editing and updating my email address on my profile and saving the changes to all my accounts. Then, I removed the Stack Exchange account from my logins and added it again. But, still it's using my old email address to sign in!
Is there any direct way to change the email address for Stack Exchange Account?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


Click on your user name and go to my logins which is at the top near the edit tab. I believe from there you can configure your login email address. It may take some time to update.

EDIT: I guess another way you can go about it is making another account with your desired email and then merging your old account to the new one. See here:

    I have tried that but, it is taking my previous email address as the default. Also, there's no edit option to change the Stack Exchange email address. – user226631 Jun 26 '13 at 17:57
  • Did you try removing your other logins? I believe you need to remove the other logins so that the only login there is will be the new email address. Also just realized this is a duplicate question meta.stackexchange.com/questions/114703/… – aug Jun 26 '13 at 18:15
  • Yes, I've tried that. But, even after removing everything, it's taking the email address that I used for the first time sign up on Stack Exchange. It's not even asking for any email address when I remove all my logins and try to add a Stack Exchange login. – user226631 Jun 26 '13 at 23:24
  • I updated my answer. I'm not 100% sure but you can try a user merge? – aug Jun 26 '13 at 23:51
