Hi Atlassian team,
I've tried to change the email address associated with my account multiple times but never received a verification email, even though the system says that an email has been sent. Any chance you could fix this?
I don't have access to the email address that's currently associated with my account anymore. I'm trying to change it to <removed by Atlassian Support>..
Hi @martinalmquist ,
I found both your current email and the one you're trying to change it to on our email suppression lists due to errors returned by your organization's mail server in the past. Both email addresses have been cleared off the lists.
The next time you try to change your email address at https://id.atlassian.com/manage-profile/email , the verifications should not be held up at the service side. Do note that there are some limits around how often changes can be submitted - and unfortunately I'm not able to reset the counter if you get an error that you've tried to change your email address too many times. If that limit hasn't been reached already, the verification email should go through to your organization's mail server. Let me know if you still can't see it at that point!

I then canceled the deletion to restore the account. It seems like the two accounts are connected, but I don't understand how.
Interesting - I wouldn't have expected your first account to go through the deletion process also.
Usually when someone has an unexpected account (let's say it's at "email@example.com"), the most sure-fire fix is to change the email address. Google for example lets you do something like "firstname.lastname@example.org" as an address and it will still deliver to "email@example.com". So, the process goes:
When using an Atlassian account that is not managed, it’s possible to change the email address, but we often receive the following notification on the email that we want to use: Sorry, we couldn'...
