Email ID Question??????????????????

why is it that once someone deletes their ID, the change is permanent and cannot be returned and it will not be made available ever??....why cant Comcast change it back??? just wondering since it seems like not so hard of a request but im probably dead wrong!

Re: Email ID Question??????????????????

I think it gets lost in server land, where it will frolick along with all the other happy usernames that have been abandoned.... ....awww poor little guys

I believe jackbean just plain forgot to log in as 'joint4iverso' before making that post Busted!

As for the question, they don't get lost, they are kept for a time period before being re-released back into the system. At least that's the way it's always been.

I still maintain that e-mail addresses should become available again. For example, AOL will place a username in limbo for 6 months after it is terminated. I'm sure this has to do with either making sure the person isn't just experiencing temporarily billing problems, or that if the person wants a username back, they can still retrieve it for up to 6 months.

I had to get my Comcast account rebuilt due to some error on their end, and the tech simply deleted my old account, and set all my addresses up on the new account in a matter of minutes, asking me for the exact spelling of all of the usernames. They worked within 10 minutes of hanging up the phone.

Has Comcast confirmed a deleted ID is never returned to the free pool?

Under @Home (at I realize Comcast is NOT @Home), a deleted ID was held in reserve for 30 days, then became available for reassignment. A level 2 tech told me this. Would seem logical that Comcast might implement the same parameters, if we go out on a limb and assume that "logical" and "Comcast" belong in the same sentence.

when i called requesting changing primary account names to secondery they told me i could not do that and if i wanted to change the name i could no longer use that name even after 30 days?...they only told me i could change the name but the best they could do is add a number at the end of the name

Well obviously you have your answer. Even if it is a non-answer. Now maybe we can let Mr. Ed lie peacefully instead of flogging him to no end.
