HT1918 help with changing rescue email account

Hey folks,
My apple ID is using an invalid email address...its really old.  I want to change it to the email address I submitted for my resue email address.  Itunes will not allow the change because the new email addy is already assigned as a rescue email.  How do I change that so I can useit as my apple ID?

To edit or remove your rescue email address (from here) :
Navigate to appleid.apple.com using your web browser.
Click "Manage your account"
When prompted, sign in using your Apple ID and password.
Click Password & Security
You'll be asked to answer 2 of your 3 security questions before you can make any modifications. If you are unable to remember your answers, you can choose to send an email to your rescue email to reset your security questions.
After you've validated your identity by correctly answering your security questions, click Edit to the right of your rescue email address.
Once you've finished editing your rescue email address, click the Save button directly below the email field.

  • I need help with changing my iCloud account details

    I have just change my email details on all of my other apple accounts. With this I also change my password but now I can't change my iCloud account details because my password and email are different. Can anyone help....?

    On a computer, you sign out of the current account, then sign back in with your updated credentials.  On an iOS device you delete the existing account then sign back in with the new credentials.

  • Need help with apple "me" email account!!!

    When checking my me account it says The connection to server failed...what can I do without deleting my me account because I don't want to lose all photos on photo stream??

    Hello,
    You cannot use .mac or MobileMe as type of Account, you have to choose IMAP when setting up, otherwise Mail is hard coded to change imap.mail.me.com to mail.me.com & smtp.mail.me.com to smtp.me.com, no matter what you try to enter.
    iCloud Mail setup, do not choose .mac or MobileMe as type, but choose IMAP...
    On second step where it asks "Description", it has to be a unique name, but you can still use your email address.
    IMAP (Incoming Mail Server) information:
    Server name: imap.mail.me.com
    SSL Required: Yes
    Port: 993
    Username: [email protected] (use your @me.com address from your iCloud account)
    Password: Your iCloud password
    SMTP (outgoing mail server) information:
    Server name: smtp.mail.me.com
    SSL Required: Yes
    Port: 587
    SMTP Authentication Required: Yes
    Username: [email protected] (use your @me.com address from your iCloud account)
    Password: Your iCloud password
    Also, you must upgrade your password to meet the new criteria:  8 characters, including upper and lower case and numbers.  If you have an older password that does not meet these criteria, when you try to setup mail on your mac, using all of the IMAP criteria listed above, it will still give a server error message.  Go to   http://appleid.apple.com         then follow directions to change your password, then go back to setting up your mail using the IMAP instructions above.
    Thanks to dpepper...
    https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3867171?tstart=0
    In Mail's Window Menu, choose Connection Doctor, any red dots for status, if so what is the message?
    Then click the Show Details button & Check again.
    Mail: Can't send messages, "Cannot send message using the server smtp.xxxxx.com" alert appears...
    The Password rejection can confuse people since it's a catch all meaning...
    This Password, Username, Authentication method... is not recognized on this Port to this Server, or a server end problem.
    If using a browser to login via WebMail works it's not Name or Password, but one of the other ones.
    The receiving email ports are:
    IMAP is port 143
    IMAP-SSL is port 993
    POP is port 110
    POP-SSL is port 995
    Outgoing ports are...
    SMTP and SMTP-SSL is on ports 25, 587 and 465. Port 587 has to be SSL, and port 465 is enforced TLS-wrapped and is generally used by Outlook users.

  • HT1918 how can I change my rescue email account?

    Currently it seems our rescue email account is my wife's work email which is difficult for us to access from anything other than our Mac.  I can access my work email on my phone so I would prefer that account as the rescue email.

  • EA4500 - How do I change the email account the router is associated with in Cisco Connect Cloud?

    I have an EA4500 runnign the latest firmware that supports the Cisco Connerct Cloud and I need to change the email account the router is associated with. How do I do this? (Online Help does not explain.)

    We plan to deploy over 350 of these routers across the country. In our situation, it would not make sense to associate all these routers with one email account or even, at the other extreme, a separate email account for each router. In addition, you have created a management nightmare for us if we pursue this option, because anytime we need to make a change to the email account associated with the router, we would need to re-configure it manually. We need to manage these routers separately and outside of the Cisco Connect Cloud option. I understand that I can downgrade the firmware to the prior release, but this is a temporary fix (eventually security vulnerabilities will be discovered that will force a firmware upgrade - in fact, you have already had one) and I would like to request an option to manage the router outside of the Cisco Connect Cloud email associations. Will this be possible in the near future? Otherwise, we will need to consider another vendor for this project.
    Hopefully this should be possible in the future.
    I believe that I can make it

    You can't delete an existing account, you can only choose to stop using it.  It will still be there should you decide to use it again in the future.

    I'm having trouble with my Apple ID. I changed my email account, and recently (a month ago) and since I switched is requested every time I open any app to Apple ID password to the old email. How can I solve this? Could it be that my iPhone 4S is in sync with my Ipod???

    If you updated your existing account then try logging out of it on the iPhone by tapping on the id in Settings > iTunes & App Stores and then log back in and see if that 'refreshes' the account on the iPhone. If you created a new account then any content that you purchased/downloaded via the old account will remain tied to that old account, and only that old account can download updates to its apps.

  • HT2534 How do I change my rescue email account?

    I would like to change my rescue email account.  I no longer use [email protected] How can I do this?
    Helen

    Sign in to manage apple ID
    Go to "Password and security"
    ---> at this point you may be able to change your rescue email address
    ---> you may need to answer security questions and THEN be able to
    Alt strategy --
    This is what I actually did when I needed to change my rescue email. However, it is clear that the above strategies would now work for me.
    I needed to change my rescue email b/c I wanted that email to be my primary email/appleID.  The rescue email and primary cannot be the same for some reason. When I needed to do it, I forgot the answer to one of my security questions so was forced to click "Send reset security info email to •••••@***.com." This sent an email to my rescue email address -- so if you cannot access your rescue, this alt strategy will not work.
    When I clicked the link sent, something went wrong and aple could not bring me to that page. However, when I looked back in the browser tab where I was managing my AppleID, the page/environment for "Password and security" changed. All that was there was something to click that said "Reset .....". This brought me to a page to change all 'password and security' related issues including my rescue email address.
    Summary of Alt:
    Sign in to manage apple ID
    Go to "Password and security"
    click "Send reset security info email to •••••@***.com."
    --> may have to go to rescue email address and follow instructions there and it may work
    --> could be you only have to renew the 'password and settings' page to see new option to click "Reset...."
    --------> This latter step was available to me after clicking link in rescue email

  • HT1918 change rescue email address

    I can see how I change my primary email address in my apple account - but how do I change 'rescue' email address ?????????

    You can do it through My Apple ID: http://appleid.apple.com
    Click "manage account" on the right. Sign in. Click "password and security."
    You can change your rescue email address after you answer your security questions.

  • HT1918 cannot change my email account that the iTunes store uses for my login

    cannot change my email account that the iTunes store uses for my login

    What happens when you try to change it ? You should be able to change by logging into your account on this page : http://appleid.apple.com
    Or via the Store > View Account menu option on your computer's iTunes
    You might then need to log out of your account on any devices (iPad, iPhone, IPod Touch) that you have and then log back in so as to 'refresh' the account on them.

  • How can I reset my apple id security questions, if I have not set a rescue email account?

    My new iPhone says "To help ensure the security of your Apple ID we require additional information."  It then asks me for the answer to my security questions.  Which I can not remember.  I can log into iCloud and my apple ID, but can not change my security questions.  A web search indicates that I should be able to send a security email to my rescue email account.  Since this option does not appear on my accounts security question screen, it looks like I never setup a rescue email.  How do I reset my security questions, or setup/change my rescue email account?
    Thanks in Advance!!

    Actually, you'll have more luck contacting AppleCare Phone Support.
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HE57
    With the information you provided, I assume they can verify your identity and reset your account security questions.
    Kind regards,
