    When I try to change the email address on my wordpress.org account markhowellsmead, the system warns me that other email addresses are already in use. But I only have one wordpress.org account. How can I find out which other accounts are using my other email addresses?

    Moved to Everything else WordPress.

    the system warns me that other email addresses are already in use.

    Huh. That means you have an account with the other email already or had used it in the past. We block re-use because that would let spammers back in.

    Do not post the account details or any email addresses here, send an email to forum-password-resets@wordpress.org and someone will help you there.

    Sorry for the bold text but sometimes people do post things like that on this very public forum and they’re always sorry. 😉

    Also for anyone else reading this, multiple accounts get detected and both accounts get banned when found. And they do get found.

    This isn’t the case with this user, I’m just replying that way for future readers who come across this topic.

    Thanks @jdembowski. It looks as though a different account is registered to my real email address, and that account isn’t registered to me. I’ve contacted the plugin team directly.

    We’ll tell you the same thing, though.

    You’ve got two accounts. Emails are one account only. So … tell us, or the reset, what account you want CLOSED and we can do that. But you’ll still be stuck with a used email. Sucks.

    The account is registered to you. It’s got your email. You made it in 2008. It happens. No big, but please do what Jan asked to sort out the accounts.

    Issue closed as Samuel Wood (Otto) is dealing with this via email. Thanks for all your help so far.
