How can I change the email that notifications get sent to?

Hi all,
I want to change the email address that emails get sent to from Discourse. How can I do that?

I went to preferences https://discourse.mozilla.org/u/andrei/preferences/account then to mozillians https://mozillians.org/ro/user/edit/#idp-profiles where I added my other email to my profile https://mozillians.org/ro/u/andreip/ The problem is that it seem that I need to make it primary. I cannot make it primary.

Current email I get notifications to is andreip@posteo.net
The new email I want to get notifications to is petcuandrei@protonmail.com

What am I doing wrong?
Thank you!

@leo, can you chime in on this?

andreip@posteo.net is a firefox accounts account. The place to manage the email is at http://accounts.firefox.com/ - however, I believe it does not currently support changing the primary email.

note: keep in mind that several RP (relying parties/websites) may use your email as your identity, thus changing primary email may break access to these RPs.

Yeah the flow is pretty confusing here (aka it’s broken), you’ve actually got to make sure the email you want to change to in Discourse isn’t a secondary email, otherwise Discourse will complain about you changing your email to an email which already exists… apologies!

I’ll manually change your primary email server-side.

Edit: emails updated. Let me know if you have any further problems!
