'De-activated' account...and I didn't really mean to!

I de-activated my skype account around a month ago but I had some contacts that I've forgotten the names for and would like to get this account back, if possible. I can't remember the password (but I know the past password) nor the e-mail I changed it to.

 

Is there any way I can do it? Thanks!

if your account has a billing or purchase history in the last 6 months, you can request for a new password without the need of your registered email address. just click the link below;

I think there's now.  one thing you can try is - using another account, open the Add/Search contacts window, then enter the email address that you have possibly registered in the account in question in the email address field.  Once you enter the correct email address, the results will show the account in question in the results.  In this way, you will know the email address associated with that account, and can proceed in requesting for a new password for it.
