G-mail inconvenient for me but continues to receive even though closed

I closed my g-mail acct by removing it from my mail preferences (I still have another account). but g-mail is still receiving incoming mail and saying the postmaster can't send it. However, I am receiving it thru my other acct. We had it set up to forward. It is confusing the people who are sending it.

    I went thru my mail preferences and did similarly to your answer.
    But now I don't have a gmail page to do as you suggested.
    Google doesn't seem to allow anyone to write a personal letter...can't blame them but .....


  • pdrandel Apr 16, 2009

    I use Thunderbird...thank you...Pat

  • pdrandel Apr 16, 2009

    Actually my service provider is Cox that supplies a cable connection...I just use Thunderbird as a program for mail.

  • pdrandel Apr 17, 2009

    The not deliverable letter that is going to the person sending me an e-mail (to Cox-via Thunderbird) is getting the letter from g-mail.
    But that letter is coming to me as well as the person's e-mail to me.

    Though I never changed my address to g-mail (it was set up as a forward) their address eventually took over. I suppose it was because often they replied to me and that address became prominent.

If you decide that you don't need your Gmail address anymore, and you're sure you won't want your username in the future, you can simply remove Gmail from your Google Account. Here's how:

  1. Click Settings at the top of any Gmail page, and open the Accounts tab.
  2. Click Google Account settings.
  3. Click Edit next to My products on the right side.
  4. Click Delete Gmail Service.
Once you delete your Gmail address, you can't reactivate it, and you won't be able to retrieve any messages. if(document.getElementById('kb_ie8') != null) showLayer('kb_ie8'); if(document.getElementById('kb_ie8_win') != null) showLayer('kb_ie8_win'); if(document.getElementById('z_ie8') != null) toggleZippy('z_ie8'); if(document.getElementById('z_ie8_win') != null) toggleZippy('z_ie8_win'); if(document.getElementById('kb_ie') != null) showLayer('kb_ie'); if(document.getElementById('kb_ie_win') != null) showLayer('kb_ie_win'); if(document.getElementById('z_ie') != null) toggleZippy('z_ie'); if(document.getElementById('z_ie_win') != null) toggleZippy('z_ie_win'); if(document.getElementById('kb_win')) showLayer('kb_win'); if(document.getElementById('z_win')) toggleZippy('z_win'); if(document.getElementById('kb_winxp')) showLayer('kb_winxp'); if(document.getElementById('z_winxp')) toggleZippy('z_winxp'); if(document.getElementById('kb_US')) showLayer('kb_US'); if(document.getElementById('z_US')) toggleZippy('z_US');

    What is the name of the software you want to use or are now using for email. There may be a way to block the gmails.

    Randall Trahan Apr 16, 2009

    So I think I found the answer but I want to make sure I understand the question, you are currently getting Gmail emails even though you closed it and you want it to stop and just all mail go to Thunderbird, correct?

  • Randall  Trahan
    Randall Trahan Apr 16, 2009

    Yes I understand that..Who your ISP is doesn't matter. The problems is with the GMAIL server..what I'm trying to get at, is your problem. Which if I understand you correctly is, you are still getting emails from GMAIL, even though you are using Thunderbird...like same email from different places one from GMAIL and one from Thunderbird.

I closed my Yahoo Acct. because Yahoo told me it had been compromised. Thought I opened a new Yahoo Acct., but when accessing it - it goes to the old one. ?? HELP.


You don't have to close a compromised account. You can just update the password and that should uncompromise it for the most part. Just make sure you have encryption enabled if you are not accessing it from their https site..

I cancelled my hotmail acct. and mistakenly ask to send mail to my g mail acct. Now I am getting all mail from hotmail to g mail. I want to cancel the sending of my hotmail e mail to g mail and just close...


You can't cancel it, it will remain forever there. Go to it once more and change what you did before then set a new rule: all mails there go directly in the spam folder. Then just stop logging into it - after 6 months of inactivity it gets archived and it will no longer accessible for anyone but you, if you will want it back sometime in the future.

I had to reload my Outlook Express e-mail acct. on


No to worrry as all you need to do is to follow accordingly the settings that are asked in the windows. Open the outlook express and open- tools, under this you will find- accounts. Now remove off all the old accoutns that was there earlier and click for new account. Now folloe accordingly as the window responds to proceed. If you are using hotmail then there is no need for you to enterr the fields in the HTTP and SMTP. However if you are using any other service provider then you must go the site and check for your codes for the HTTP and SMTP, the incoming mail serrver and the outgoing mails server, note this down from your email account home page properties and enter them into the outlook window field. continue and finish. Now you can enter the next account with the same method. First of all get the details before you enter them into the outlook. I am sure you will be able to do this. Good day

Pay Pal sent funds to my yahoo mail after the account was closed


You can go into your Paypal account and add the other Yahoo email account to your Paypal account. Then you can claim the money sent to the other Yahoo account. You can have, I believe, up to 6 email accounts receiving money on one paypal acct.
