How To Change Facebook Personalized Upload Email Address?

The Facebook personalized upload email address is a special, dedicated email address for each of its users, allows one easily upload images, videos, or status update to Facebook Wall directly from email client / web apps.

That is to say, you can instantly share funny junk mails with image attachments on your Facebook Wall by simply forwarding those emails to this special email address of your Facebook profile.

Clearly, it is way simpler and more efficient than have to download attachments from email server then upload again to Facebook.

However, there is risk of letting somebody to post on your behalf some funny status message or unwanted pictures to your Facebook Wall, if someone knows your personalized Facebook upload email address (even he doesn’t know your Facebook login ID and password).
Right now, Facebook doesn’t enforce restriction of using only registered private email address, i.e. one can use any of his/her private email address for post status update on the Wall via FB personal upload email address, regardless the email address he/she used for FB account registration.

    So i’ve tried resetting my email but everytime i tried there was an error. Then eventually it said I exceeded the number of times I can reset and it says I have to wait a couple of days. It still didn’t let me reset it. Is there a way around this?

    How do I change it?
    I don’t want my facebook to be hacked by some random person.
    It shouldn’t be this hard, and really all I need to do is get around the error but it obviously won’t allow that. All I want to do is post some pictures…

    Hey all, anyone suffering this issue and unable to change their upload email go to: https://www.facebook.com/help/hacked

    Go through the steps to secure a hacked account. Once you have done this you are also allocated a new upload email.
