Change Admin Email

Maelezo

This plugin allows an administrator to change the “site admin email” option, without sending a confirmation email from the server. This can be useful for testing purposes, localhost setups, or any other situation where outbound email is disabled on the site. A new “feature” of WordPress 4.9 is that the administrator cannot change the site admin email without outgoing email setup on the server. This plugin restores the administrator’s ability to change this setting without sending a confirmation email. Note that the “site admin email” is the global email used for admin purposes on the site. It is the “from” address when the site sends an email. The “site admin email” may be different from the administrator’s personal user email, which is associated with the administrator’s user account.

Usage

Once activated, an administrator can change the admin email from the Settings >> General page.

Installation

Clone or copy the file into your plugins directory, then activate the plugin from the admin menu.

Had trouble changing my admin email, then found this plugin. Once installed, I went back to Settings > General and changed the sticky email address and Saved. Done. Got a hilarious, self-promotional email at the new admin address asking me to consider reviewing the plugin. And this is it. Highly recommended.

This is a great plugin to replace obstinate old admins who refuse to cooperate and reply to the email sent by WordPress to add a new admin email. Prevents them from holding the site hostage by refusing to respond. This plugin bypasses them completely and sets the new email immediately. The only thing I would change is the button says “Test Email”. I would change it to Replace Email, then it would be more intuitive. Thanks,Mike
