There are two email addresses listed in my apple id settings (section "REACHABLE AT"):


The first is my login address. I want to change or remove the second one. How can I do this?

  • If you check your iCloud settings for Mail, is it checked? Alternatively, if you go to iCloud.com and select the Mail icon there, are you prompted to create an address? If you're not, its your iCloud.com email address and is permanent. – the eels have eyes Sep 11 '17 at 20:18
  • Yes it is the iCloud.com email address. – Jessica Sep 11 '17 at 21:12

Apple does not let you delete or change the primary iCloud email address. You can stop using it, but it'll always be associated with that account.
