The first thing you need to think about when trying to remember what your email address is, is figuring out whether you set it up with a web based domain, like Yahoo, Hotmail/Outlook or Gmail, or if you did if through your internet service provider.
If it was the latter, then you could probably give them a call and see if you can get it that way. They will probably have it on their system as you username, or at least have a record of it.

If it was with Hotmail or Gmail or equivalent, it gets a little trickier. 

With companies like this, it's difficult to get through to a "real person" to help you, so you'd have to do the hard work yourself. And there's not usually an option for "How do I find out my email address?" it is more set up for retrieving your password if you forget it.

  • Have you tried asking friends/family that you may have emailed from it? They may have old correspondence from you which will have your email address on it.

If none of that helps, I would probably advise setting up a new email. It's really easy to do, only takes about 5 minutes, and if you haven't really been using your old one too much it won't be too much of an upheaval. I would recommend Gmail. It's super easy to use and the interface is very user friendly.
