This is a bit convoluted but -

I was on holiday with dodgy internet in the summer when the whole Jeffrey hacking scandal blew up. My account was one of the ones which was listed with password and I panicked because I also used the same password for my email (I know, I know). As soon as I could, I de-registered but some days later I created a new hotmail account and a new MN account using that. I saved my password on the desktop machine so I can post, search etc on that machine but had to try several times to set up the hotmail account so am not sure what address it was set up under and certainly no clue what the password is!

I have been trying to email MN from my usual email address to see if somehow I could link that address with the new account instead or alternatively abandon this account and set up a new one on my old email address but if it's blocked, how can I do that?

MN help!

Hi Stillunexpected - thanks for posting.

If you go to 'My Mumsnet' at the top of the page and click on 'My Account', your email address will be shown on that page.

If you've forgotten your password for Mumsnet, you can log-out and perform a password reset to get a new password. However, you will need access to your email to do this.

Please do shout if we can help any further with this.
