You can now add a recovery email address in your edX Account Settings:
The recovery address can be any email that is not currently and has not in the past been connected to an edX account.
After entering an address you will see a confirmation pending message and should receive a confirmation email at the address listed. Click the link in the email to confirm.
If you do not receive the confirmation email:
- Check the spam folder at that email
- Make sure you have not previously used this email on edX.org
- Try adding email@example.com to your contacts or your approved senders lists, go back to the Account Settings and add the address again to resend the confirmation
