Any email account creation/deletion frequency limitations??

Any email account creation/deletion frequency limitations??

I use a website that requires an email address. That's not unusual. But this website limits information to a single run using a single email address. It also limits the scope of the information it gives you. To get at all of the information I will need to create a new email address for each "run". I expect to need to run the program 262 times to acquire all the information.


My current Comcast account allows me 7 email addresses. I have used 4.


I can obviously create a 5th address and use it for a run and delete it. But, can I create a second 5th address, use it, delete it, and so on, 262 times?


I would like to make a run once a week. This will take (262 / 52 weeks/yr =) 5 years until completion. I'm comfortable with that, and honestly, can't use the data from a run faster than that anyway. Hopefully, the website will still be available in 5 years - I hadn't thought of that until this writing.


Is there a limit on how many new email addresses I can create in my account? Is there a limitation on how often those addresses can be created or deleted? Is there a cooling off period, that is, I delete it and must wait 3 days for it to clear? Is there any similar wait time when I create a new email address?


Thanks for your help,
