Hi @Ravikiran  - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

You need to fully delete the user first. Then should be able to re-use that email address. 

@John, Thanks for your response, We removed the user from the User management section --> searched the user --> select the user ---> click three dots option and click remove user option but still, that associated mail id is not acceptable for other user, 

May I know the process of full deletion in Jira, please provide quick workaround fo this

Do you have a menu option for Directory at the top of the User Management page?

If so, click on that and then search for the user. 

Then click on the 3 dots menu and you should be able to do a Delete there

Waiting for reply, Please provide solution ASAP
