How to Change Skype Email Address

In this tutorial you are going to learn how to change Skype email address.


Step # 1 – Sign in to your Skype account online, access your profile

Sign in to your Skype account at www.skype.com. Click on the “Profile” link under the “Account Details” header found halfway down the middle of the page. On the next page, scroll down to the panel labeled: “Contact details”. Your email address will be the first detail listed. You cannot edit your “Primary email”. Instead you must enter a second email address, make that your “Primary email” and then delete the original email address.

Step # 2 – Add a second email address, and make it the primary email address

Click on the “Add email address” link just below your email address. Enter the new email address in the field that appears, scroll to the bottom of the page and click “Save”. Now you will have two email addresses listed. Click the “Add email address” link again. In the editing page that appears, select the radio button just to the right of the new email address that says “Set as primary email”, scroll to the bottom of the page and click the “Save” button. A message window pops up, titled “Enter Password”. Enter your password and click on the “Enter” button to confirm that you want to change your primary email address.
