Default Changing my E mail address

I had a bit of a problem finding where and how to change my email address in my profile ( Cricket did it for me). My problem is that now the updates go to my new address but the daily forums still goes to the old address.
Can anyone help with getting this changed so I can close the old address and still receive my daily dose of the forum?
And Happy New Years to all of you out there. I wanted to wait for the holidays to be finished to post this since I knew everyone was busy with their own problems and projects.

Thanks
David (bushwhacker)

I bothered her through out the holidays but she was unable to fix the problem either.
My Forum is still stuck back in my old Yahoo. The Updates, are coming into my G Mail just fine.

The daily updates you are referring to don't come from RouterForums.com (which is why I don't have the power to fix it) they are coming through Google Feedburner so the change would have to happen there.

Need admin assistance? Post here so we can help you!

Is this the form we need, and if so, what do we do with it now?

Normally I feel that I am as smart as the average bear, but, I have no idea what you just told me.
I go to my Google account , but, they already have my email address, this is how i got on Google to start with.

Maybe I am not being clear in what I am attempting to do.
I have for years been with Yahoo.
Yahoo has cluttered everything up with junk and spam. I have over 400 spans a day, and they have tons of drop downs and
crap when I am attempting to use my email. Lately, the Yahoo site locks up and i am forced to reboot and start all over again.
I want to shut yahoo off and use my Gmail address, I have had one since I had my own business years ago but have not used it for a long time.
My daily forums go to yahoo, I changed my email address on the Forum to my Gmail account. The follow ups to comments that I happen to make on the forum, come to my Gmail. BUT,
My daily Router Forum still goes to Yahoo.
If I can't get it changed to my Gmail, I plan to shut my Router Forum account off, delete it completely, then sign back in as a new fellow, and see if Cricket can ship my old Posts to my new
account.
Tell me what you think.
This really shouldn't be that difficult.
Where is Stick when I need him. He knows everything. Smile
But really, man made this thing and man should be able to fix it.
Thanks for your help John

Besides your normal google acct there is something called google feedburner that you have a sub scription to that send infomation from different feeds
( google - google feedburns and you can read how it works ) you need to open this up ( google feedburns) and remove the feed to router forums
Sorry can not help i read this on google
