new repo, moved email address

I have a repo on BitBucket with an email address associated with it. I recently created a new repo, and removed the email from the old repo, in order to use it on the new repo. When I send a verify email from the new repo, it still thinks it belongs to the old repo and therefore will not verify on the new repo.

How can I fix this?

If you have multiple Bitbucket accounts, you can mistakenly commit your code under an email address that maps to an account name you did not intend. To have the existing commits on a repository map to a different account, you can use Username aliases for the repository in question. Aliases are per-repository. To set up an alias for a repository, you must have admin rights on it.

For information on configuring your local repository or configuring aliases, see the following link:
