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
