With so many email providers available on the Internet, it is highly possible for one to forget about an email account for which one had once signed up.

There are many reasons why it's beneficial to know what accounts you do have, and to not leave an unused account available on a server online.

You may need to find past accounts you've forgotten about if you are suffering from identity theft, or you're worried that you've been missing a number of emails you were once expecting to receive.

Make a list of all business you've worked for and schools you've attended.
You may have a work or school email that is still active.

Go to the website for the business and school, and then try to locate an email directory for employees.

If you don't find a directory, email the the owner of the website to say that you are curious if you still have an active email account with the company or institution.


Consider any forums, blogs or websites for which you have written. You may have been given an email account for one of these websites and not even be aware of it.

Go to these sites and log in to your account.
For example, if you have a Blogspot account you must have had a Gmail account with which you started your blog.

Try a trial and error method.
If you know that you have typically used one or two kinds of usernames, then you should try using that name for various emails.

Go to an email provider's website and try searching by common nicknames you may have used in the past. Also, try using variations on your own name.

Go to email websites like Yahoo!, Google and MSN to see if you have an email account with a popular provider that you've forgotten about.

Find a link to find email addresses, where you will then be prompted to type in your first and last name.

You will be told whether or not that person has an account with the provider.
You may then need to answer an old security question, or prove that you are the person who created the account.

Find a reverse email website like EmailFinder.com.
These search directories can be helpful for finding a lost email account.

Simply type in your first and last name and the state where you reside.
You then will have to pay a small fee in order to view all results, so this step should be a last resort.

I would like to cancel both my accounts on pay-pal so i canhave just one account but a forgot the password and username can pay-pal erase them both


If there's no balance or transaction with the forgotten account, you need not to worry, it'll automatically be deactivated after few months but your original/existing account will be functioning properly without any hindrance or obstruction. When an account is not active or transaction being done for several months, paypal will send you an email to your email address with the message describing about the deactivation of the account, if you don't take any action, it'll be deactivated.

It's better if you can at least remember the email address [Note: your username is your email address] of your account so that you can deactivate it yourself. But still you can try to close it using the "Forgotten your email address or password?" form.
To recover your email address and your your password, use this form...
Forgotten your email address? (you'll need to provide your name full name, zip code, phone number)
To reset your password use this form;
Forgotten your password? (you'll need to provide your email address)
After you retrieve your password or recover your email address, login to your paypal account, click "profile" and select "Close Account" from the options available, you'll be presented with a warning if you are sure or not, click yes and continue with it.

I hope you could understand my instructions, if you have problem with my instructions, please let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Forgotten password


On the main Paypal page, Click on "Have you forgotten your email address or password?" (this is a choice of two links). If you choose email address, you can type in details that you may remember such as your name/address, credit card/ bank account details etc. and it will then allow you to supply a new email address and password. If you clicked "password" then you can type in your email address and your password will be sent to you.
