I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Is there any chance this account hasn't been accessed in more than 365 days?  After 365 days the account becomes inactive.

After an account becomes inactive, all messages, folders, and contacts are deleted/purged from the  system and are no longer recoverable.
Seth SimmonsSr. Systems AdministratorCommented:
just login to your account
the inactive limit is 365 days so if it's only been 6 months then should be accessible

Because of several trails , I ve even forgotten my password, and the alternate email what are the steps to retrieve it
Scott CSenior EngineerCommented:
You can try the steps here.

If these don't work then the account is completely inaccessible.
