Updateing theme email details

Issue Summary

Cant seem to update the admin email address.
When I was setting up Local, I left the default Email, (mailto:info@diaboliquedesign.com), in the box. I need to change it to my Email.
General Setting Email Address window + User account window:
When I enter the new Email I get:
Email (required) If you change this, an email will be sent at your new address to confirm it. The new address will not become active until confirmed.

There is a pending change of your email to marquadigitaldesigner@gmail.com. Cancel”
I have enter it three times. I have been waiting for a few days for the email to be sent to me to confirm.
What am i doing wrong?
PS: Nothing in the SPAM Folder…
The email never arrives…

Troubleshooting Questions

  • Does this happen for all sites in Local, or just one in particular?

  • Are you able to create a new, plain WordPress site in Local and access it in a Browser?


Describe the steps that others can take to replicate this issue. If you have screenshots that can help clarify what is happening, please include them!

System Details

  • Which version of Local is being used?

  • What Operating System (OS) and OS version is being used?

    • For example: macOS Catalina or Windows 10 Professional
  • Attach the Local Log. See this Help Doc for instructions on how to do so:

Security Reminder

Local does a pretty good job of scrubbing private info from the logs and the errors it produces, however there’s always the possibility that something private can come through. Because these are public forums, always review the screenshots you are sharing to make sure there isn’t private info like passwords being displayed.

@MrMarqua Emails from WP sites within Local are captured by Mailhog. Within the Local interface, select the site, then the Tools tab on the right, then Mailhog, then finally “Open Mailhog”. You should see the emails that you’re looking for within the Mailhog inbox.

Burt, you are an absolute legend, thank you. I hope this helps other noobs to Local… i didnt even know about that feature. Stoked, shot.
