Any way of doing this, as I no longer use my Gmail account, and can't seem to change the login address to my new one?

How can I change the email address associated with my Stack Exchange OpenID?

Once you associate an email with your Stack Exchange OpenID, you can't change it, this is . Says Kevin Montrose:

If you've lost access to the e-mail you registered with initially, create a new openid.stackexchange account and either add it to your Stack Overflow account (via your profile page, if you're still logged in) or create a new Stack Overflow account and email us via the Contact link so we can merge the two accounts.

From: How do I change the email address associated with my Stack Exchange OpenID?

Rather, you have to create a new SE OpenID here: https://openid.stackexchange.com - confirm via email - then go to your Super User profile, click My Logins on the upper right corner, between flair and apps. A popup appears - then click add more logins. From there, click the Stack Exchange OpenID option and type your credentials, click confirm and you're good to go.

  • Once you associate an email with your Stack Exchange OpenID, you can't change it, this is status-bydesign. So the design is to be unnecessarily and highly inconvenient, cumbersome, and time-consuming? ಠ_ఠ – Synetech Jul 1 '15 at 20:01
