Reuse old username/email-address in another account.

I wanted to use two different accounts, one for work-related stuff and another one for personal use. However, instead of changing the email address in my old account I created a new one using my work-email. But I want it the other way around.

So basically, I want to know:

If you change your email-address, can you use the old address for another account or will it still be blocked in the system? And the same for the username. I don't really want to try it, in case it doesn't work and you are not able the change it back either.

Thanks for your help.
