I still am receiving e-mails sent to my initial e-mail address that I signed up with, even though I updated my profile with a different e-mail address. I changed my e-mail address a few weeks ago, but just received the javaRanch newsletter (on april 12th) to my old e-mail address.

I am afraid you need some patience. I have changed my e-mail address several months ago and I still get the mails on my old address. I even sent a mail to Jim Yingst (at jim (at) javaranch.com), from the thread Spamming but Jim has some Tax things taking has time.

Shouldn't this be an automated process though? Don't tell me this process takes manual intervention? (or maybe the manual process if fixing the code so the automated process is working

I believe that the auto process sometimes does not work.... Do not quote me on that!

Jim needs to check several things in the process, and April 15th is the day in the US that income taxes are due.

It certainly should be an automatic process. And it's worked perfectly well in the past. But right now a number of people are having problems, so I need to (a) figure out where the system is caching e-mail addresses after people opt out, (b) manually remove those emails if necessary, and (c) fix the software so this doesn't continue to happen. And yes, taxes are due in the US, and I'm a procrastinator.

Today I received a message on the updated email-address.
Thanks for fixing it.
