General Settings Email Can't be changed in The Edublogs Forums bbPress Theme

I've installed The Edublogs Forums bbPress Theme and now I can't change the General Settings admin email. When I create a new user/blog account the system doesn't automatically email me because the admin email can't be changed. The user can't access their new blog as well. Any help on this would be appreciated. When I try to change the admin eamil under "Settings" and "General" this is what is says:

"This address is used for admin purposes. If you change this we will send you an email at your new address to confirm it. The new address will not become active until confirmed."

The default email remains as you@yourdomain.com and can't be changed. Hopefully I've explain my issue clear enough so someone out there can offer some help. Thank you in advance!
