You can update a contact's email address by viewing their Contact Details and updating the Email Address field. To do so, click the Contacts tab and on the right, do a search for the Contact's existing email address.
When you pull up the Contact's email address, click on it.
This will bring you to the Contact Details screen. On the contact Details screen, click Edit, update their email address and click Save.
The contact's email address is now updated.

Hi Marcia, While on the Contact Details page, make sure you are in the Contact Information section. You can access Contact Information via the menu on the left of the Contact Details page. If you are on the Contact Information page and cannot edit the Contact's email address, that means that the contact has confirmed their email address. A contact can confirm their email address via the "Confirm" link in the Permission Reminder of an email. If the contact has confirmed their email address, you will want to remove the old address from your account and add the updated address as you would a new contact. I hope this helps, Jarrad Community & Social Media Support
This used to be the case but I'm trying to update an e-mail address today and it looks like that option has been removed from the Contact Information section. Do you now have to create a whole new record to change an e-mail address?
If you cannot change a contact's email address that means they have confirmed their email address via the Permission Reminder in your email. You will need to remove the current email address and replace it with the updated email address.
I hope this helps,
Ok. Thanks. It's a correct e-mail address but she wanted to change it from a work to a personal e-mail address. I will let her know to update it with the link at the bottom of the e-mail.
Hello. I am having the same difficulty. To be clear, since I read the directions to do this. You say "remove email", but the instructions are to remove all information - phone, mailing address, notes - everything associated with the client, and then re-enter everything all over again. Every time someone wants the email address, that they have previously confirmed, changed. Correct?
Yes, unfortunately if the contact has already confirmed that email address, you would need to completely recreate the contact in Constant Contact.
What you may consider doing is exporting your contacts into an excel file and then locating the email address you would like to update. Delete just the email address from the file and enter in the new email address. Upload the file to Constant Contact and then remove the older email address from the account. This way, you won't need to create the new contact from scratch.
I hope this helps,
It would be so much easier if constant contact would just allow us to change any email address with a couple clicks. This is cumbersome and time consuming. I hope in the next upgrade you will fix it.
