Change My Email Address Without Deactivating Account

+3 votes
I have followed the directions for changing my email address, however, the text under the field states: "Caution: Changing this email address will change your WikiTree login. Removing it will deactivate your account and you will not be able to make any further changes to any profiles."

Which is not what I want to do.

How can I change my email address without deactivation?

Thank you so much,

The warning is just telling you that when change your email address, you will now have to log in with that new email address instead of the old one. Your password will stay the same though.

If you delete the email from the field and don't add one to replace it, then your account will be deactivated. So, just make sure you have something in the email box before you save.
