    I'm guessing you want someone to try and create an email account with your old email address?

    I wonder if there is a timeout on that? (and how long it is).

    I just tried to re-create a couple of old email addresses of mine from 6 years ago when I was with Optus last time around and they are both unavailable.

    Seems email addresses are going to have to become more and more complex if you can never re-use an old one (unless of course you have your own domain (which I highly recommended anyway ;)).

    there is a lockout but they can override it in the backend but it needs to be for very good reasons.

    I had my email moved from 1 account to another through some wheeling and dealing.
