    AFAIK, only moderators are able to see user's email addresses. you should check received mail history on all your email accounts?

    How are you able to login-in to the Meta? IMO use the same email id which you have used in Meta here. Because your both accounts are associated.

    So you want access to your account about which, the only thing you do know is the account number (public information). Isn't this a little suspicious ?

  • If going to the mods doesn't work, you could elevate to e-mailing [email protected] (though the mods would probably tell you that themselves). There's nothing we regular community members can do to help you here, though.

    Sure thing. The email account that you used was [email protected].

Unfortunately we can't reveal what email you used for privacy reasons. If you lost access to your account, go to https://stackoverflow.com/users/account-recovery and try out a few email addresses.

If all else fails, use the "contact us" link at the bottom of any page to reach us (Stack Exchange support) privately. We still won't be able to just reveal what email you used, but we have a few other things at our disposal then.

That said, hims056 is right - you can sign into your Stack Overflow account the same way you just signed in here on Meta.
