I want to add a new mail address to launchpad. I was able to add a new address and I confirmed the address, but I can't use it for example for mailing lists. I can't set it as contact address.

Is that not possible?

From this answer:

If you log in to your old account and click on the yellow icon next to where it says Email on your userpage, you can change your email address there and set one as default.

Yes, thats what I try. But do you know what my problem was? I try to confirm the email, but when I click on the link and the confirmation page opens, I did not see the "cancel" and "continue" buttons in the top left corner. Maybe they shoud be more eye-catching – burli Feb 14 '12 at 7:42

You can change your email address for notifications but beware that the login address will still be the one used for registering so don't forget it.
