Changing your account’s email address is easy and can be done two different ways.

From the Cloud Manager

  1. Log in to the Cloud Manager.

  2. Click on your username and choose My Profile from the drop down menu.

    Click My Profile from Username Drop Down Menu

  3. On the My Profile page, in the Email field, enter the email you would like to associate with your account.

  4. Click the Save button.

    Click to Save a New Email

  5. Cloud Manager will tell you that the email address has been updated. You will also receive an email at this new address from Linode Support confirming this update.

  6. If you enter an invalid email address, the following error message is displayed.

Using the API

You can also use the Linode API to view and update your account’s email address.

  1. Use the View Account endpoint to view your account information including your email address:

    curl -H "Authorization: Bearer $TOKEN" \
    https://api.linode.com/v4/account
    
  2. An example of the output:

    {
      "active_promotions": [
        {
          "credit_monthly_cap": "10.00",
          "credit_remaining": "50.00",
          "description": "Receive up to $10 off your services every month for 6 months! Unused credits will expire once this promotion period ends.",
          "expire_dt": "2018-01-31T23:59:59",
          "image_url": "https://www.linode.com/10_a_month_promotion.svg",
          "summary": "$10 off your Linode a month!",
          "this_month_credit_remaining": "10.00"
        }
      ],
      "active_since": "2018-01-01T00:01:01",
      "address_1": "123 Main Street",
      "address_2": "Suite A",
      "balance": 200,
      "balance_uninvoiced": 145,
      "capabilities": [],
      "city": "Philadelphia",
      "credit_card": {
        "last_four": 1111,
        "expiry": "11/2022"
      },
      "company": "Linode LLC",
      "country": "US",
      "email": "[email protected]",
      "first_name": "John",
      "last_name": "Smith",
      "phone": "215-555-1212",
      "state": "Pennsylvania",
      "tax_id": "ATU99999999",
      "euuid": "E1AF5EEC-526F-487D-B317EBEB34C87D71",
      "zip": 19102
    }
  3. To update your email address, use the Update Account endpoint:

    curl -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
    -H "Authorization: Bearer $TOKEN" \
    -X PUT -d '{
    "email": "[email protected]"
    }
    }' \
    https://api.linode.com/v4/account
    
  4. The output will be mostly the same, but this time, the email field will be updated with your new email address:

    {
      "active_promotions": [
        {
          "credit_monthly_cap": "10.00",
          "credit_remaining": "50.00",
          "description": "Receive up to $10 off your services every month for 6 months! Unused credits will expire once this promotion period ends.",
          "expire_dt": "2018-01-31T23:59:59",
          "image_url": "https://www.linode.com/10_a_month_promotion.svg",
          "summary": "$10 off your Linode a month!",
          "this_month_credit_remaining": "10.00"
        }
      ],
      "active_since": "2018-01-01T00:01:01",
      "address_1": "123 Main Street",
      "address_2": "Suite A",
      "balance": 200,
      "balance_uninvoiced": 145,
      "capabilities": [],
      "city": "Philadelphia",
      "credit_card": {
        "last_four": 1111,
        "expiry": "11/2022"
      },
      "company": "Linode LLC",
      "country": "US",
      "email": "[email protected]",
      "first_name": "John",
      "last_name": "Smith",
      "phone": "215-555-1212",
      "state": "Pennsylvania",
      "tax_id": "ATU99999999",
      "euuid": "E1AF5EEC-526F-487D-B317EBEB34C87D71",
      "zip": 19102
    }
