Re: Email address hacked can i close it

Is the blueyonder address concerned your primary account/username?  If so it cannot be deleted.

However, if you stop checking the email account the mailbox will eventually be closed and the address will simply remain as your primary username.

How long can this take.

And will it prevent anyone else using it.

At least 150 days after last access.

Yes, no one else can resurect the email address, although that doesn't stop it being spoofed by miscreants.

Handy for a start email address linked to community page so if I ignore it I cannot see or reply to this page.

You can easily change the email address used for community notifications by editing your community profile settings.
