Release inactive email addresses
Accounts that have been inactive for 12 months should be released.
We do not recycle email addresses: https://tutanota.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/547633-do-you-delete-inactive-accounts-recycle-username
Please consider this for accounts if they were made and deleted quickly without much activity.
Please never do this. Someone could simply register as a previous user and get the other person's confidential email!
I'm not sure if thats a good idea.
When someone else then uses that address for an account then he will receive the spam that still arrives from the previous user of that email address.
And lets say user 1 created an account on some website forum or blog, then he leaves the email account untouched for a year and so it expires, user 2 could then perhaps receive spam or an email from someone about that forum, then it becomes an option to say ... I forgot my password, please mail me a new password, so from there on user 2 STOLE the identity of user 1 on that forum and done that by using THIS sites service! I don't think that Tutanota would like to be in that position. It should not break anyones privacy in that way.
