Re add email to github

is it posible to re add another email to my github account, that i had deleted before ? the message is “Error adding xxxxxxxx email is already in use”

:wave: Welcome!

Yes - and the likeliest scenario for this error is that you have an old, forgotten account with that email address attached to it. You can try to sign out of this account, and then

https://github.com/password_reset

For the email address you’re trying to add. If that email address is one that is set to allow password resets, you’ll receive an email and you’ll be able to login and delete your unwanted account. That will free up the email address so you can add it to the account you want to use.

You may get an error, saying that the email address can’t be used for password resets. If that’s the case, please open a ticket using the email address you are trying to use and Support will be able to assist.
