I have a couple of test sites running Discourse just with IP’s at present and I have been testing Elastic Email (EE).
Seems ok so far but I haven’t done the domain verification SPF stuff yet.
I want to change the admin email address but it’s an email address that is being “suppressed”, not bounced by EE. So I am not receiving the verification notices to change the email address (or set up new admins etc).
I have manually created another admin where the email address is getting through EE and tried to change the email address of the “broken” admin via their preferences (rather than admin section). It allows me to change the address but it’s sending out a request to the suppressed email account for verification of the change.
How do I complete the verification?
Is there a process in rails or a hack of the database I can do? I don’t want to kill the admin as they have posts on the site that it will affect.
