My username on Steam is an old e-mail I no longer use. Is there a way to change username?

My friend is stuck using an old @hotmail.com username a good several years since he's actually used that email account, I somewhat doubt you can. –  Nick T Dec 31 '11 at 6:27
The account name is still under your original email you registered with. Fortunately you can change your actual "contact" email address. I'm afraid we're stuck with these old email account names until they allow us to change it. –  Jeff Mercado Dec 31 '11 at 8:10
@NickT Same here. Mine is an old Yahoo account. –  user2974 Dec 31 '11 at 20:20
My Steam username is an email address at a defunct ISP –  Colonel Panic Nov 4 '12 at 18:02

You cannot change login name AFAIK, you can change only account alias for your friends (chat name and some games name). For alias change go to Steam->Settings->Friends.
