I recently changed my email address used with PayPal. My new email address is now confirmed, is the primary and my previous email address has been deleted.
However, I recently received a "Your Legal Agreements with PayPal" email at my old address. This is a genuine PayPal email and not some phishing attempt.
This does concern me as it's only by chance that I saw this as it's a mailbox I'm about to lose and no longer have access to. It would be problematic to receive updated legal agreements to which I have to agree to in an email address I no longer have access to nor am aware of the changes!
I've been through all my account settings and there's no mention of my old email address.
My guess is these emails are part of a different subscription list which isn't being updated to reflect primary email account addresses.
You may have to ask customer services this one but try this first.
