    Hi @anthonyblue

    I'd be happy to help with that. To set up a new account using the same email address you'd need to delete the old account – not just the software. Deleting the software doesn't delete the account. If you know the credentials for the existing account you can sign in at and delete it from there. If you do not have the credentials, can help.

    I hope thatI hope that helps. Should you have any other questions or concerns, please feel free to ask.
