Re: recover old email address

When you delete a user ID like that, it is suspended for 90 days, and then is put back into the pool of available IDs for any other Comcast customer that wants it.  After the 90 days is up, you can try to get it back by setting up a secondary account with that ID and see if it's  available again.  I did that once for a test and it worked.
