Unfortunately, if, when you created the account, you have not registered a secret question which you remember, or an alternate recovery email address or phone number to which you have access to receive a reset code, you cannot prove that you are the account's legitimate owner. Hence account recovery is absolutely impossible and there is no way around it.

There is nothing you can do if you created the account on the mobile device or number you no longer have access to.

Always create accounts on a PC or Laptop (landline IP), and then attach a recovery email to it. That way, you can have multiple ways to recover the account!

also because of security questions i am unable to login. keep it a normal login so that i can enter my inbox. My mobile no. given as security questionnow no longer exists, optionally my second optio was a second email id of the satyam company email id wherein the company has shut down so their email id does not exist. So i am helpless. As told by you i had created this login long back from a desktop. Request you to belp me to login in the email id ***@***.

If you know the password, try to login from a desktop or laptop.

i am the legitimate owner of the account as i had created the account on a PC. Also i had attached the recovery email id and other is the mobile no. but unfortunately that was my old number which i no longer use and secondly the email id which was my second option for recovery email also is closed as the company itself doesnt exist now. So i am helpless for the recovery options. But i can very well remember my password. So would appreciate if you help me to login without asking recovery questions.

I believe that you have not read my answer carefully.
