Saving Changes and Initiating Verification Process

After entering your new email address, don’t forget to save the changes. To confirm the changed email address on Slack, click the ‘Save’ button after making the edit. Once you’ve saved the changes to your email address, Slack initiates a verification process to ensure the ownership of the email account.

This straightforward process involves the following steps:

  1. Receive a verification code or link via email.
  2. Check your email inbox, as well as the spam or junk folder, in case the verification email from Slack does not appear in your main inbox.
  3. Use the verification code or click on the verification link to validate the new email address.

Confirming Your Email Update in Slack

Having initiated the verification process, you’ll need to finalize your email update in Slack. Slack sends a confirmation email to the new address to ensure ownership before completing the email address update.

Finalizing the email address change requires clicking the verification link contained within the confirmation email sent to the new email.

Clicking the Verification Link

The subject line confirm email you need to look for in Slack is titled “Confirm your new email address”. After locating the email, open it and click on the provided link titled “Confirm your email address”. This is a crucial step in verifying your new email address.

Once you click the verification link, you will be redirected to your Account page in a web browser where you can finalize the email update. Following a successful verification, a confirmation message will appear.

Setting the New Email as Primary

Upon verifying your new email, make sure to designate it as the primary email in Slack. This ensures you receive all important notifications in the correct inbox. Click ‘Set as primary’ beside the newly added email address to make this change.

Upon setting the new email as primary, you’ll be prompted to enter your password. Doing so confirms the changes and solidifies your new primary email address in Slack.
