I have another HP account that I want to close; don't like the user name, all the Hubs were a bust. I want to close that account and am thinking of starting another one which will be better. I am wondering if I can use the same email that I used when I opened the account that I now want to close. Or can I use that email on another account that I already have?
I was experimenting at one time, none of it worked, wanting to start over.
You can use the same email address, just add a +1 at the end, e,g., if your email address is email@example.com, you could use firstname.lastname@example.org. Any emails from this account will go to email@example.com. They are essentially the same email, but our system will see them as different. I hope that helps!
Robin's trick is a good one if you want to have multiple active accounts with the same email address, but I will add that if you actually do close an account we expunge the email address from it, which means that you can use it on a new account even without that trick.
The other thing to note is that I think the trick only works with gmail. If you use another email service like Yahoo, it might not work. Since you are deleting your account, it shouldn't matter (as Paul Deeds states).

I tried to start a new Hub with a new username, but associated with the same email address (I was prompted to log in to update, when I tried to start a new Hub account using the same address).
