    I need to change the email address for the admin user. For some reason I cant do it from the Account -> Personal Data area in plesk because it gives me this error

    "Unable to update admin's email. ch_admin_email: /usr/lib64/plesk-9.0/ch_admin_email_httpd execution failed:
    ch_admin_email: Cannot change admin email for client apache.
    "

    It does change all of the admin emails in the qmail and httpd configuration files, however it does not change it in the GUI and still send emails to the old email address about admin changes. This is unacceptable as this email is still used by someone who is not the admin. There is no (obvious) cli command to change this, you seem to allow everything about the admin user change except the email address.

    Tell me where this is and how to fix this please, someone? This is urgent!

    It is 64 bit CentOS 5.6 running the 64bit 9.3 Plesk, upgraded from 9.1

    Also /usr/local/psa/bin/init_conf --update -email email@doamin.com gets the same error as the GUI
