How to find out which email address I used to create my skype account.

Hello,

 

I have a skype account but cannot recall the email address I used for this account. I know that I have used it in the past for skype credit and most of my friends and family have me on their contact list under that name.

 

I've created a new account since but I would still like to recover the old account since most of my family and friends have that account and I probably still have some skype credit on it.

 

The problem is that I don't have any order numbers or know which credit card was used since I haven't used that account in at least a year and probably more.

 

Can anyone help me?

 

Thanks!

 

Phil

using your new account, open the Add a Contact button.  Then prepare a list of the possible email address associated with your original account.  Then one by one, enter those email address in the email address field in the search window.  Then once the search results shows your original account, that mean that the email address you entered in the one associated with it.

Re: How to find out which email address I used to create my skype account.

thanks for the help Primemover but this brings me to my next issue.

I found out the email address associated to my account using the method you suggested, but when I type that email address in the "forgotten your password" page it says "Sorry but that email address is not in our records, please try again."

WEIRD!

BTW the email is philippe.hajjar@mail.mcgill.ca

I'm letting you know so maybe u can help me out

thanks!

in your case, I think you may need to contact customer service, as that account may already have been tagged as inactive by Skype (especially in the case that you haven't used that account for a long time).
