Hey there,
This is my first post on this community, so I hope I'm in the right place with my question. When I was cleaning my email archive recently, I came across a few emails from Adobe dating from around 2010 that rose some questions, because I'd like to minimize the amout of online accounts, IDs etc. I have. 

I found emails with passwords etc. from the community, my ID and membership. 

[1] To start with the latter: what about that membership?! I don't have a payed membership, so that can't be it.
[2] Do I really need different passwords for all of these 'platforms' so to speak? Or can I throw out a few mails?

 

But to return to my initial question: what mails should I keep and wich can I throw out?

 

I'm looking forward to your clarification.

 

Thanks in advance!

Hieke

I mean... Of course I know the differences, but I'm asking specifically for the login details AND why I have this membership login, since I don't have a membership...?

(I wanted to edit the original message, but couldn't find how. If there's a way, please let me know!)

I can click on '... More' but that only gives me a tiny empty box, haha.

I replied to an email from store@adobe.com from 2010 about this, but first nothing happened and after my reminder I received a message saying that address doesn't exist. Hence my forum post.

Emails from 2010 are 11 years out of date. I'm not surprised they bounced back. What are you looking for?  What are your concerns?

Hi, tnx 4 the reply.

I have a free plan, like I said in my initial post. My question was/is: why do I have 3 different sets of log-in details and can I ditch the free membership benefits account for instance? I'm trying to minimize the amount of accounts I have.

=============

This is a user-to-user forum.  We don't know what you have or why you have it.  We can't tell you what to do.  You must make that decision yourself.

 

See link below for details on deleting your Adobe account.  Once you delete an ID, you cannot use it ever again.

Hope that helps,
