Gmail Issues

2-step-verificationI have been using Gmail for a long time. It works very well. I have accessed it from different countries. Love it. That said this morning I ran into an issue. I have run into similar issues in the past few months. Allow me to elaborate. I used to have a couple additional e-mail accounts hosted at Google with different domain names. When I bring up a new Chrome page and click on the Gmail link toward the top right side, it takes me to a SIGN IN page. This is something relatively new. When I click SIGN IN the email address that is displayed is one of the accounts that I no longer used. Today I tried to delete that email account. That is when hell broke loose. I am not able to log into my Gmail account at all. I am aware that I have received email messages due to people that have called my cell phone asking if I have received their message.

I tried to recover access to my Gmail account, but for security issues that will take a few days. It seems that one cannot be without email access for more than a few minutes. So what can I do?man_behind_bars

I decided to open a new account at mail.zoho.com. On the signature I am posting my Gmail and my Zoho email accounts in case I run into access issues in the future. That said; I did not seem to find the emergency access codes that I received from Gmail some time ago. As soon as I have access to my Gmail account I will see if I can receive such codes and will put them in a safe location for future use.

If you have experienced being locked out your Gmail account please let me know what you have done to prevent this from happening again.
