What is the function of admin email?

The website admin email address is used to send important email notifications, such as: receiving notifications when new user accounts are created, notifications about automatic updates being installed, website moderation, etc. In addition, the website admin email is also used to recover the user’s lost password and notify about the user’s account.

How to change to website admin email

Method 1: Change the admin email on the WordPress admin interface

Note: Since WordPress version 4.9.x and above, changing the website admin email becomes more complicated because you have to confirm the link email is sent to the new email address that needs to be changed.

To change the website admin email, you do the following:

First, log in to your website administrator => go to Settings (1) => General (2).

In the Administration Email Address section (3), you add a new email => click Save Changes.

You will receive a notification that you will need to check your new email to verify the link sent to you.

Then you check the new email and click on the verification link as shown below:

For other users email

Go to Users (1) => All Users (2) => select the user to edit and click Edit (3)

In Contact Info => Email (required), enter your new email => click Update User to complete.

Note: If your website has not been configured to send email through gmail’s SMTP or a domain email service, you will not receive an email with the confirmation link above. To solve this issue, you can perform additional configuration of SMTP for the website according to the instructions below:

Method 2: Change Admin Email via phpMyAdmin
