Changing an admin email address

After installing discourse and the email service the verification emails are working on new users but I can’t update the admin user. It’s set as the default example address. When I go to the user settings and change the email address it says the verification email was sent. But I never receive the email.

This is an urgent security flaw. I cannot change the default root password without an email verification! I there another way around this?

Thanks for this but when I type ‘rails c’ I get ‘command not found’. There are lots of ruby-related folders. Please give further instructions as I am a bit of a newbie at this.

Please note I am running it in a docker container.

Sounds like you are not inside the app container?

cd /var/discourse

./launcher enter app

rails c
