when I installed wordpress for a newbie I mistakenly typed admin@website.com as email address
so I change email address to users gmail

and I can see user is admin but asked to verify email
Should I ask newbie to check their gmail or will verification be sent to admin@website.com

Are admin level functions limited because email is not verified.

No, the admin functions are tied to the user role setting and have nothing to do with email.  

What is asking to verify the email?
