The problem is that recovering the email account is not possible.
I deleted it (now it's blocked) because i didn't want to use it anymore. 
Sadly I've forgotten to change the email for the AUR account befor that. :-(

Would be sad if i have to wait (180 days I think) till the used address 
gets unblocked so that I can reuse it.

Registering a new AUR account would be ok, but then i can not use the 
username michast.

I see the problem that I have to prove that I am the owner of the 
account, but how can I do that?

...the ssh key is also lost (thanks to the chakra installer..) :-/
