New user registration goes into wrong email

When a new user registers to my website, the notification goes into one of my admin email accounts but it is not the admin email account that I want it to be sent to.

How do I change this?


Please send temporary WP access to with details for reproducing this issue and we’ll check it. You can create a temporary access link using this plugin Temporary Login Without Password – WordPress plugin |

Is it possible if you can email me on how to change the admin email? I am not able to give WP access right now


If you can give the solution here, that would also be great

This is a core WordPress feature, it’s not related to HivePress plugin. As far as I know, there are only 2 places for editing the admin email:

  • Site Email field in Settings/General
  • In Users/Your Profile, in the email field

Please make sure that you changed the email in both places (changing it in the profile also requires a confirmation via email). You can also disable this email notification, e.g. How to Disable New User Notification Email in WordPress
