The only way to change a BOINC account's email is to log into that BOINC account here on the website and change the email address in the account.

The best that I can suggest is to try logging into your account with any combination of passwords you can remember. The plus side is that BOINC does not authenticate against your email server so it doesn't matter if your email is working or not.

Barring that, if you happen to still have an old BOINC install running on one of your previous computers, you can retrieve your account key from a file within the BOINC folder and use that to log in.
