My question is pretty much as in the title. I have an old account but no longer know which e-mail I used to set it up (never mind the password xD).

Is there any way I can get the e-mail? I'm guessing it would be difficult - the only "confirmation" that it's actually me is the same name.

    $\begingroup$ Moderators cannot merge accounts, so you'd need to contact SE in this issue. -- See e.g. here: meta.mathoverflow.net/questions/2998/… $\endgroup$
