If you want to receive admin e-mail notifications, here is what you want to do to enable that,

First, you must check if you have entered the correct e-mail ID under contact information in your profile settings.

Situation 01:

If you have a single blog-hosted website:

Navigate to WordPress Admin > Settings > General

Under E-Mail Address, put your preferred Admin E-mail ID, and you are done. You will now receive e-mail notifications for future events for your WordPress website. Don’t forget to save the settings.


Situation 02:
If you are on a WordPress Multi Blog Network Site, the second thing to do Now is to Navigate to Network Settings by hovering on the Admin Toolbar: Network Admin > Dashboard > Settings > Network Settings

Now, under Network Settings, put your correct e-mail ID under ‘Network Admin E-Mail’ under ‘Operational Settings’. Don’t forget to save the settings.


Hope it helps…

Note: To turn off receiving admin notification e-mails, remove the e-mail ID from the same form.

Thanks & Regards
