Whenever someone adds a comment to a blog article on the website that I have build I recieve an email from WordPress saying that a comment awaits moderation.
The email is send to my own email address [ redacted ]ed but I would like to have it send to the email address of my client (which is a different email address). So I changed my email to the email address to that of my client in “Settings – General – E-mail Address”.
The problem is that whenever there is again a comment added to the blog article, the notification email is send to my old email [ redacted ] and not the newly changed email.
I tried a couple of possible solutions like trying to make a new user with Administrator rights and the email address of my client. Changed all [ redacted ] email addresses in the database. Using the plugin “Better Notifications for WordPress”. Added php code to functions.php. All did not work.
What can I do in order to get the comment notification send to the right email address?
