Hello - I have an adobe ID that is linked to digital editions - I don't remember the password and I no longer have access to the email address that it is attached to.  How can we remove the authorisation from the computer - have tried deleting Adobe DE and reinstalling - multiple versions.  No luck.  Also tried to find the activation.dat file in my mac library - no where to be found.  Tried to reset my password, but it is going to my old email address and I don't have access to it any longer.  I have now set up a new Adobe ID with my current email address, but I can't link it to my ADE on my computer as I can't de-authorise my account that is currently signed in.  Happy to lose any content that is attached to this account as it was only library books which have since expired.  Please help, I have tried everything.
