For security purposes, the email change verification links will expire after 3 hours. If the email change verification links expire, you can reinitiate the change by following the steps above.

Verify the account email change

When updating your email on file, PartnerStack sends two verification emails, one to the old address on file to verify ownership of the PartnerStack account, and one to the new email address to verify the new email.

Verification flow:

  1. Check your old account email inbox for an email from hello@partnerstackmail.com, titled Account Update: Approve your email on PartnerStack
  2. Click the link in the email. You will be logged out of PartnerStack and prompted to log back in using your new email address
    1. PartnerStack will then send an email to your new email address to verify it is operational
  3. Check your new account email inbox for an email from hello@partnerstackmail.com, titled Account Update: Approve your email on PartnerStack
  4. Click the link in the email and login to your account using your new email
  5. Your email change is now verified!

The email change verification links will expire after 3 hours. If you don't see the verification emails in either your old or new inboxes, check your spam/promotional folders. 

If you no longer have access to your old account email inbox, reach out to support@partnerstack.com for assistance.
