Wow, this is fun. Connect.o.o shows that my e-mail alias points to
the address which I also use now to send this e-mail. Just as the
microfocus account page. On the other hand I just tested, and
receive e-mails to a completely different address, which I used 10+
years ago. Luckily I still have access...

If you want to have it changed, please write to admin@xxxxxxxxxxxx.
Including your username or a link to your connect profile would be
helpful ;-)

Setting "Contact email" to the target address you want to use makes it
easier for us because a) copy&paste ;-) and b) as a verification that
it's really you / your mail address. (You can set that field to private
aka admin-only if you don't want to have it public.)

I do not think connect.o.o changes the destination address.
Well, there are two fields: email alias (full) --> email alias (target)

AFAIK the "email alias (target)" field is only visible for admins.

Ah! As I am, I don't know what other people see O:-)

OTOH, there is a "Contact email" field which is more public (depending
on a user's settings) and user-editable, but it has nothing to do with
the alias.

But changing the target here doesn't change really the target. It only
records what you say about it. The actual change is done opening a
ticket with admin at AFAIK, I could be wrong.

You are ;-) We have a cronjob that regularly (IIRC hourly) gets the
aliases and targets from connect.o.o and feeds them to the SUSE
mailserver (which also handles

Oh! Well, that's good :-)

Nevertheless, mailing admin@o.o is the preferred way so that we have
mail alias changes tracked.

Ok, so that's the answer we have to give people asking.
