Apart from big players like Gmail and Outlook/Hotmail. For example, ProtonMail, Skiff and Tutanota will never recycle usernames, don't thibk they will ever change this until EOL.

In contrast, most other paid email providers do recycle usernames, i.e. FastMail, posteo, mailbox.org. I'm not sure how Zoho does this better because they do have an inactivity period of 6 months, whether they recycle those inactive accounts or not is still question mark because I couldn't find any information about it.
