newbie question re Super Admin email address

Quick question – when logged in as Super Admin I note that under ‘Users’ the Super Admin email address is my personal email address; whereas in ‘Settings’ the Network Admin Email field shows a different email address (i.e. for registration and support emails.

Should these two email settings be the same, or is it in fact good for them to differ (in case, for example, server goes down).

Thanks in advance for any help!

    They don’t need to be the same, no. This is set when you first install WordPress and are usually the same to begin with.

    The fact they’re different suggests that you’ve either changed the network admin e-mail at some point, or your user e-mail address.

    You can change either if you want them to be the same though.

    Hi Phil,

    Many thanks.

    By the way, I’m noticing that when I search my username on WPMUDev it does not show all of my posts; whereas searching on Google does…

    Also, it would be great to be able to sort by recent posts when one searches on WPMUDev – instead it seems not to have any date filter, or did I miss this? :slight_smile:
