Ok, if you have no proof it is yours, and you forgot your password AND your secret passphrase,
AND it isnt't even registered on your email address, you won't be able to get it back.

Guess what... it probably belongs to someone else anyway. ;)

If it IS yours, just call them up and explain your case and bring all your proof, and they will gladly reset your pass.

No comment has been added to this question in more than 21 days, so it is now classified as abandoned..
I will leave the following recommendation for this question in the Cleanup topic area:
Split: LucF{http:#10821866} & skyflash_de{http:#11703918}

Any objections should be posted here in the next 4 days. After that time, the question will be closed.

I disagree...
skyflash_de didn't add any new information and if you look at the date of posting the question was already abandoned for a long time before his message was posted.

Best regards,

LucF

*g*

If LucF needs the points for his mental well being, just give them to him.... he seems to be really craving for them.

No really, LucF, thats really embarrassing... lol

Unlike you, that only provided links he has to follow, and didn't even write anything yourself.... I did give him the solution right away. So IF anyone gets all the points, it is me... *g*

BTW, I hate those experts that always paste the same link list to lots of questions, regardless of what the actual problem is. They only do it to gather lots of points, why is beyond me... but they don't really care if that solves the problem, if just they are the first to respond and get at least some points from it. It's embarrasing... really.

Whatever the mods decide is fine with me. I am mature enough.

skyflash_de,
Your message is probably one of the worst reactions I've ever received.

I've never "asked" for points anywhere, neither am I here. As I've only asked one single technical question and solved all my others by searching the PAQ I prefer the database to be clean of any garbage and/or repeations. This because I rather look at the PAQ first before having to ask my own question.
If you look to my answer history, you'll find that I always try to target my answers towards a specific question which has been asked by the author of a question.
Naming me in the same comment as in which you express your oppinion about copy/paste "experts" doesn't exactly please me either.
You have to admit your comment (http:#11703918) came in almost 4 months after the original question was asked. As questions are considered abandoned after 21 days of inactivity this question could have been picked up by the CV's much earlier but there's a backlog, and as I'm a CV myself I know how hard it can be to work against a backlog this big.
On top of that your comment was insulting towards the author of this question implying that he was trying to hack someones account. Not all things are what you think they are.

LucF

p.s. I won't respond to your comments anymore on EE, if the Moderator following up on this question decides one way or another I couldn't care less. After your comment I'd rather have this question to be deleted. If you don't agree with me, feel free to email me or post a comment at CS to avoid any extra cluttering on this question.

I was told to just make a recommendation and then forget the question but, I don't like the situation here right now.

Well I'm no mod I'm just a bloody clean up voluteer-beginner-greenhorn.

When I check a question for information to be of use for others, I read each comment and try to identify several points like:

* Was the question understandable?
* How were the answers to it?
* Was there a common sense?
* Was the owner of the question active till the end?
* Why was the question abandoned ?

So basically I don't want to care about the time an answer was given. There are situation (ok not here) were an answer might take some time.

LucF gave some useful advices I really appreciated. But then I thought, ok fine, but why hasn't the owner responded to this. So here comes skyflash_de comment: He points out, that there are ways to get back access to someone's very own account, all one has to do is, talk/write to the mailprovider. But in case, we might be talking about a way to get into anyone's else account, so the owner should be shown a hint to stop looking for a way (at least here on the site)

Those were the reasons to keep the question and to split points.

@ anniemod: I have learned that lesson with those 4 months. Won't happen again.

Appart from that, no more comments from me, regarding that matter.
