When i go to Edit Profile > Emails & Passwords (tab), i see a column Private Email, this is the email id which i use to login to forums.asp.net site. How do i change this.
Reason: Assume my current private email id is firstname.lastname@example.org. I created email@example.com few days back, for the purpose of microsoft forums like silverlight, asp.net, windows phone etc. I want to change my login email to this new one. Is it possible? If
so please let me know.
I tried to to change it in private email textbox but no luck!

AFAIK, it's not possible ... you need to create a new account ... I could be wrong. g.

looks like i'm wrong just click in the text box, delete the old version, type the new one, then click the green save button below.
Visually, the private e-mail looks greyed to my eyes ... regardless, you should be able to replace it.

BTW, are you using the forum login of the live login ... I use the older forum login ... AFAIK, with regards to your private e-mail, it should not matter which login you use. g.

this is the email id which i use to login to forums.asp.net site
Since you are logging in to the site using an email address as opposed to logging in using your account name (niksv), then i can assume you are using a liveid login.
If you wish to use a different liveid with your account here, then you'd first need to get your current liveid disassociated from your niksv account.
You can send a message using the feedback form here to request changing your liveid: http://www.asp.net/feedback
