Can I transform my Gmail e-mail address?
I have an unreasonably lengthy e-mail address on Gmail and also would love to get it transformed, or perhaps simply get a new one, yet I can not see just how. As quickly as I visit on Google it recognizes that I am and also enrolling in a new e-mail does not function.
Exists a means to get my e-mail address transformed or get a new one that I can after that switch over to?
Modify 2 July 2010:
I require to make clear the inquiry due to the fact that I have not had a response to what I intend to attain. I intend to transform the key address on my Google account (https://www.google.com/accounts/ManageAccount). When I click the link to modify "Email addresses", the key e-mail is revealed without an alternative to switch/change it. When I attempt add a new Gmail e-mail address, it claims
" You can not associate a Gmail address with your Google Account."
I desire the key e-mail address on my Google account to be a much shorter Gmail e-mail address to make sure that I can at some point retire the existing e-mail address.
You can not transform simply the email address. You would certainly transform the entire account or do a few other bothersome point like the solutions over. Your email is your login for every one of Google.
Currently, that claimed, if you do not make use of Calendar, Docs, etc, after that that cares, transform accounts and also make use of the onward on the old one to progressively move. Actually, that's far better than simply transforming the email as you will certainly get email sent out to the old address. And also as soon as you really feel that you've obtained sufficient amassed from you rold address, switch off the forwarding and also allow all the adverspam you enrolled in rot on the old account.
Here's why you can not change your key account. According to Google :
You can make use of alternative e-mail addresses to check in to your Google Account, recoup your password, and also extra. Alternative e-mail addresses can just be related to one Google Account at once
So what you are doing by including even more e-mail addresses to your account is, you are including alternative e-mail addresses. The only means is to logout. Clear your cache/cookies and afterwards create a new Gmail address. After that vehicle onward your things to your new google connected Gmail account. Not exactly sure if this aids. Hope it does.
Log out and afterwards create a new address. (Clear cookies if you need to.) If you intend to preserve every one of your existing email (and also anything else connected to that account), I would certainly advise establishing the new "extra specialist" address to auto-forward to your existing account. After that you can merely offer individuals the extra specialist address and also receive email in one area. You'll additionally intend to transform your Reply - To in the "undesirable" account to make sure that outward bound e-mails are "extra specialist" too : Settings - > Accounts and also Import - > Send mail as
Just log out first, after that create a new account. Afterwards you can turn off once more, visit with your old account and also in The Settings > Forwarding and also Pop/IMAP set it to onward your mail to your new account.
As a side advantage, given that they are both gmail accounts, when creating a new mail you can pick what address you intend to make use of. That's what I make use of for my "official" make up work applications therefore. I visit with my "informal" account, send the resumes and also things with the official address, and also replies will certainly get onward from the official account to the informal :)
You can additionally configure your existing Gmail account to add the new e-mail address. In this manner you wont shed your calls etc
There are 2 actions to this :
Create the new account and also onward all e-mail to the old address. In the new account, click the setups switch (equipment symbol in leading - right) and also most likely to the "Forwarding and also POP/IMAP" setups. Click "Add a forwarding address" and also add your old e-mail address. After that, pick the "Forward a duplicate of inbound mail to" and also select your old address.
Return to the old account. Click the setups switch and also most likely to the "Accounts and also Import" tab. In the "Send mail as" area, click "Add an additional e-mail address you possess". Enter your new e-mail address.
You can after that proceed utilizing your old e-mail account. If you receive any kind of e-mails at your new address, they will certainly show up in your inbox. If you respond to them, Gmail needs to instantly react from your new address - in theory no one would certainly find out about your old address.
