So I have an Account, I am OP in this thread https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2106978.msg21057570#msg21057570

After that post was made, I could not log in again for some reason.  I tried getting an email to recover my account, and I get nothing (nothing in spam folder too).
I used a university email back when I created the account and I still have access to it and it works normally.  What can I do in cases where the recovery email will not go to where it's supposed to go?

After that post was made, I could not log in again for some reason.  I tried getting an email to recover my account, and I get nothing (nothing in spam folder too).

I guess, the email for reset goes to trash or spam folder. So try once more and look to spam/junk folder. Your account seems not to be hacked, because no post was made after your last post.
If that wouldn't help, send a signed message to cyrus or theymos.
But make sure to follow the instructions here:

I sent a message to the admins with a signature so hopefully that will work.

I also lost my old account (J_Dubbs) and it looks like it must have been hacked. My recovery emails are not being delivered to my spam folder. I emailed admin hoping they can assist. I found a database page and searched my username, it showed password change at like 1am today, which wasn't done by me.

Dug through my browser history: https://bitcointalk.org/seclog.php

I go there and search my old username and it shows a password changed at 01:11:39 AM. I rarely come here, so the odds of this happening the same day I logged in are slim, but sure enough I'm locked out. I'm also having issues with Poloniex, which was the reason for my visit here (was going to post about it). I'm guessing there's an onslaught of hacking happening right now or something.

I see...it seems my account recovery email is not going through then....
I suspect it is because my account is from way back and I changed my username once.
If I recover with the current ID, it says it doesn't exist. If I use my last ID, it says the email was sent..but apparently its not being sent.

I had to re-learn how to sign/verify messages, and I got access to my old wallet associated with the account in question. Hopefully it works for me.
