no can do. There are no means to merge BOINC accounts.

I have two boinc accounts the first one was set up under an e-mail address no longer available

It doesn't matter if the e-mail address is 'available'/existing or not.
It doesn't matter if the e-mail address ever existed.
I have 'empty' account registered using e-mail of the form 99999@7777.555
(such e-mail can't exist but it of course works for log-in the SETI account)

(No, you can't merge your 2 BOINC accounts, choose one and use it)

Now some projects like Einstein@home and Primegrid actually make contact with individuals. It is usually done through a PM on their site or in the worst case scenario to that email addy.

No as I mentioned before. You can't combine accounts. The one you are posing with doesn't appear to have been zeroed out.
if you log out of the BOINC manager and use the same login password as you do on this site you should get into that account. I'm also assuming that this is already the case here
