See services associated to an email account?

Hi everyone,
I want to cancel my registration in most of my online services. However, I don't actually know how many services are linked to my email.

Hi everyone,
Some seven years ago I decided to buy an input pen called C-Pen 20, which pretty much works like a OCR scan, but that is a pen. It actually worked pretty well.

That is an understatement. Along with the software optimizations I made (which do count in the long run) this laptop is a brand-new machine! Glad the original HDD broke.
