Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

A while ago I removed my gmail address and attached another mail to my google account. However, I recently found out that this means I can't log in to my StackOverflow account! It treats the google account as a new one, and allowed me to register with it. However, I can't edit any account details because the mail address is already taken by the old account. How do I recover the old account?

I don't think you can, however if you can prove both emails are yours you can ask to merge the accounts. – Shadow Wizard Nov 26 '12 at 14:19
