Change Evernote E-Mail address (Completely)

I try to change the first part of evernote email adress. 

In settings, I clicked reset button a couple of times and it only changes the numbers at the end but I'm not happy with how it looks like because of the first part because of personal reasons.

Can any Evernote employee help me to update it? I think it's something users can't do because I spend hours to find out how I can resolve it and I couldn't.

Issue a support ticket. And no, it is not meant to be a freely selected e-mail address.

Because there are no spam filters and other features, the address should be only used by yourself to forward e-mails received to your EN account. So it is not really an issue, put it to the address book and name it however you want it to be named.

For external use by others, you should use a public mail account, and send the mails to EN from there. This will protect the EN address from being spammed.

Oh I was thinking I can give it to people so they can send the notes directly to my evernote but this is a great suggestion.

Better to keep the account information closed. You can relatively easily change an e-mail-account at a provider, but the EN mail address is pretty fixed and linked to your account. 

Another way of setting up a link to specific persons (could be just one, or a group) is to open a shared notebook, and invite them there. If you grant them editing rights, a group of people can work jointly on notes in that shared notebook. It is a great collaboration tool, and everybody with access can see and contribute. Much better than sending e-Mails using this dreadful „send answer to all“ button.

Thanks a lot, one last question. If I make a shared note, the person I share will need to have an evernote account to view the note?

If you create a link to the note, and send it, anybody with that link can open the note on a browser. No need for an EN account.

If a longer collaboration is needed, probably on a whole shared notebook, it is better if everyone has an EN account (Basic will do in most cases).
