attach old user-id to newIMDB account

My emailaddress associated with my most used IMDB-account has been deleted. I cannot login now anymore after some login issues.

How can I add my old user-id to a new IMDB-account? I would like to keep my ratings and watchlist off course....

Hello hello Albert,


If a User ID has been used by any account, it cannot be used again or by another account, regardless of whether the original account has been deleted.



The reasoning behind this policy is that you wouldn't want anyone to use a past User ID of yours, as they would possibly be able to imitate you. You can change the User ID on your current account, but unfortunately, cannot use a User ID that has been used by a different/separate account.  



It is also important for you to know that we cannot transfer information from your old account, such as ratings and lists, to your new account.


Thank you for understanding.
