    My wordpress blog is hosted on yahoo - when i go to the options screen, it won't let me change my administration email. It keeps saying "this email needs to be the email of your domain name" or some crap like that, and locks me from changing it - it won't let me edit the field. - the problem is, the email that is listed there doesn't exist - it is an incorrect email I entered when I first set everything up. What is the problem?

    Dunno.... sounds like you need to talk to yahoo. Of course, you could go change it in the db, might work.

    I'd suggest you simply talk to yahoo first. Dicking about in the db isn't for the faint of heart.

    I believe Yahoo wants you to have an address that's in your domain such as admin@whateveryourdomainis.com
