Hi Prasanna,

I checked in our system and I saw a hard bounce event for the email created today, with the error message:

550: 550-5.1.1 The email account that you tried to reach does not exist. Please try double-checking the recipient's email address for typos or unnecessary spaces.

It looks that the email may not have been operational when you tried to send the recovery email and as a result we received a hard bounce response from your mail server. The hard bounce informs us that the email does not exist and in this case it is placed in a suppression list, as we no longer try to resend to non-existing emails.

I went ahead and removed the email from the suppression list. I would suggest to first make sure that your email account is working and that you can receive emails (e.g. you could send a test email from your gmail to and then request a new password reset email (a new one needs to be sent, as the previous ones were dropped).

Please also note that log in to Bitbucket is possible only with the primary email (which is the email of the linked Atlassian account), and not with email aliases. When you switched your primary email to, the other email ( became an alias of the account. This is the reason why logging in with resulted in the creation of a new Bitbucket account.

Unless you change the account's primary email, you should use to log in to this account. If you want, you can delete now the second Bitbucket account that was created accidentally.

Please feel free to let me know if things are ok now and if you have any questions.

Kind regards,
