I want to change the email address that's associated with the root login of my account. How do I do that?

You can update the email address associated with an AWS account in the Billing and Cost Management console by following the instructions at To edit your AWS user name, password, or email address.

Note: You can change the root email address associated with an AWS account only when you sign in as the root user. If you sign in to an account as an IAM user and you want to change your user name, contact your account administrator and ask them to follow the instructions at Renaming an IAM User.
