  2. Under "Account security," click on your email address.
    Note - To delete your primary email address, you’ll first need to set a new primary email address (steps below).
  3. Click the Delete icon trash can next to the email address you'd like to remove.

Set a new primary email address

  1. Sign in to your Account Info page.
  2. Click your full name.
    - The "Your Contact Information" page opens.
  3. Click Change next to your current primary email address.
  4. Under 'Manage your email addresses', select the email address that you'd like to set as your new primary email address. (Or click Add Another to add a new email address that is different than the one you want to remove.)
