Change Admin Email


This plugin allows an administrator to change the “site admin email”, 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. 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 admin’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.


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


Clone or copy the file into your plugins directory, then activate the plugin from the admin menu. No other settings required.

The tool works as intended. I found it simple and effective without resorting to other options to change website email. Recommended!

Hasn't been updated in a while. Didn't work for me. Going to: /wp-admin/options.php is more straightforward and works.

I inherited an old site and couldn't remove the original admin. So thankful this plugin exists!

Stop fumbling with password, and trying to get an email to come that never will. Use this plugin and it will be fixed in seconds. It worked for me and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

It was a litte bit difficult, that a pending email should first be cancelled. But after this, it simply worked.

An awesome plugin for changing the admin email address from WP-Admin. Tried everything but only this tool worked.
