Change Admin Email


This plugin restores the functionality as it was before version 4.9. This may be required on sites without email access, or for testing purposes. i.e. on localhost.


Once activated, you can change the admin email by going to “Settings” >> “General”.


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

After tried using the default change email, setting up SMTP, email never arrive as expected. This plugin saves me and I wish I could know it earlier. It changes the admin email easily and hoping able to change the user email in the future. Highly recommended!!
