Thank you for your question
My name is ***** ***** I shall do my best to help you.
Your daughter is too young to enter into any contracts or agreements and as such the email account that was set up belongs to the person who set it up - your ex.
There is no "human right"to have access to an email account - nor to have the one that bears your name.
On a more positive note as the years pass your ex may well mellow (it happens) and any emails can be forwarded on if he he agrees to achieve the one account that was planned.
I am sorry not to give a more acceptable answer but it is important that I am honest with you
Please ask if you need further details
I see you have been waiting a while for a response.
I think it is an excellent idea to maintain the email account and maintain a folder for her which you can share with her when you are older. There is an excellent book which gives more guidance about these type of disputes on amazon - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Represent-Yourself-Family-Court-understanding/dp/147211910X
I hope that this helps
My apologies for the delay - Saturday is volunteering day!
I am glad that you have worked out a compromise - as I said with the passage of time things may improve
