Hi wadezwd,

Unfortunately at this time there's no way to match your key to your e-mail address but you should be able to recover your passport by knowing your e-mail address in this link. You can try with your different e-mail addresses.

It's important to understand that your Sync Key is the key to encrypt your data that is sent to the service and it's not meant to be part of your credentials. We don't store a copy of it so it's impossible for us to match your key to your username.

I hope you can solve your issue.
