You should be able to change your email to your Xbox Live account without having an email sent to the old one; as long as you have your password to your correct email.

If you have problems, try calling up phone support; they could get it sorted out quicker.

The first thing you'll want to do is create a new Microsoft account (not xbox account) with the email with the correct spelling. You can do this at account.live.com. Just create a new account there, but do not take that account to anything Xbox or else it will give you a random gamertag.

Once you have the account there, on your xbox, go to the settings tab > profile > account security > change Microsoft account. Follow the prompts there. It will ask for current password, new account and new password. Once you complete that it will take 30 days for the transfer to fully happen. This is to ensure if someone is trying to steal your account you have 30 days to call to support before everything gets changed which makes finding your account harder, especially if they changed the gamertag and email.
