PAA e-mail lists--How to change your e-mail address or name

If you want to change your e-mail address for the PAA lists, you can do it yourself by doing this:

  1. Go to
  2. Enter your old e-mail address in the very bottom blank (by the "Unsubscribe or edit options" button), then click on that button.
  3. On the next page, enter your password for the list.  If you don't know it, click on the "Remind" button at the bottom of that page and it will be e-mailed to you, usually within a minute or two.  Then go back to that page and enter your password.
  4. On the next page ("Announce mailing list membership configuration"), enter your new e-mail address.  You have to enter it twice as a guard against typing errors, and if you don't enter it the same both times, it will warn you.  Don't click on the "Change my Address and Name" button yet.
  5. Check the "Change globally" box so your e-mail address will be changed for each PAA e-mail list (Announce, Discuss, Impeach, HSF, etc.) to which you are subscribed, so you'll only have to do this once.
  6. Click on the "Change my Address and Name" button.  If you didn't change your name in the name field, it will keep it as it was.
  7. If you get a subscription confirmation e-mail message sent to your new address, be sure to follow the instructions in order to confirm the address change.  This is to prevent someone from changing your address without your permission.
