When you sign up for an account with YouTube, you provide an e-mail address. If you signed up using an e-mail address that you now no longer want to use, change it by updating you account information. For example, you are changing Internet service providers, or you simply have another e-mail address that you prefer to use. Google owns YouTube, so when you have a linked YouTube-Google account, you'll need to update the email address associated with your Google account.
