Update my email address, effect?


Sorry for my english.
I have generate a new certificate with bad email address : contact@example.com

So, i have execute this command :
certbot register --update-registration --email myname@example.com

Result :
Saving debug log to /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log
Starting new HTTPS connection (1): acme-v01.api.letsencrypt.org

Would you be willing to share your email address with the Electronic Frontier
Foundation, a founding partner of the Let's Encrypt project and the non-profit
organization that develops Certbot? We'd like to send you email about EFF and
our work to encrypt the web, protect its users and defend digital rights.

 - Your e-mail address was updated to myname@example.com.

Where are send the email notification ? to contact@example.com or myname@example.com.

Thanks for advance.

No body have this information ?

After doing this, I deleted the /etc/letsencrypt directory and then regenerated the same certificate using myname@example.com.

This had the effect of creating a new account.

The account contact@example.com will still receive the expiration mails?


Sorry to insist but this is very important to me!

All emails regarding certificate created by your initial account key will be sent to myname@example.com from the moment you used the --update-registration command. Nothing should be sent to the old address.

As for the second account, notifications will be sent to myname@example.com as well.
