Question about Google Gmail

1 Answer

How do I add an alternate email address when I keep getting an error message saying "[email address] is already associated with another Google Account." I'm trying to connect to Google Calendar with b

I use Google Gmail for my business email. I use a MindSpring email account (they merged with EarthLink) for my personal email. Gmail has the Google calendar. When friends send me invitations to my personal email account asking me to connect with something on the Google calendar I hit a brick wall! The link to the invitation includes my personal email account, but according to Google I am signed in with my business email account so there is an error message saying I am not the invitee. As a solution, I tried to add my personal email account to my business one (as a new alternate address), but kept hitting another brick wall! I would get a message that states "[email@mindspring.com] is already associated with another Google Account." I have signed into all my other Google accounts and have removed [email@mindspring.com] as a recovery email address, but this doesn't release that email so I can connect it with my business Gmail account. I'm at wits end! HOW can I benefit from Google Calendar and other Google features if invitations are sent to my non-Google account? Please do not tell me to tell people to send the invitation to my business account. That is not an option. I need to keep my business account free of those kinds of email. I tried calling Google to get an answer, but that company is completely insulated. There is NO WAY to reach ANY live person at their phone numbers. Extremely frustrating. I hope someone here can help me. If so, you will be blessed 100-fold with love and good fortune!

Google theoretically does not allow a person to have two email accounts. However, if you make up a theoretical son or daughter who theoretically lives at your address, Google will allow that theoretical person to have his/her own account. Sometimes it pays to be sneaky. :)

Hello,

It sounds like the internet browser you are using saved his login information. Go to Gmail and when you are inside his account you can log off by going to the top right of Gmail and clicking the profile name. You should get a drop down box. Select "sign out". Once it signs out of his account you should be back at the login screen. You can now enter your login information.

Please comment back if you have any questions.

I want a new gmail account


Are you trying to create a second Gmail account to use with an existing Gmail Account?

Let's say you have two big uses for Gmail: one you use with friends and family/for fun and one that you use more professionally. It is definitely possible to read mail and send mail from both within one inbox. Here's how:

(Let's call that more personal account your primary account and that professional one your secondary account)

Create that second account
The first step should be to create the secondary account if you haven't already done so. To create a secondary account, go ahead and sign out of your primary account. Click the "create an account" link and get started.

To receive emails from the second account
Next, in order to see emails sent from your secondary to your primary account, you should set up forwarding. Keep in mind that you can also forward emails from your primary to your secondary account should you want all messages from both emails in both inboxes. To set up forwarding:

1. Click the gear in the top right.
2. Select Settings.
3. Select the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab.
4. Click Add a forwarding address in the "Forwarding" section.
5. Enter the primary email address
6. For your security, we'll send a verification to that email address.
7. Open your primary email account (signing out of the secondary account), and find the confirmation message from the Gmail team.
8. Click the verification link in that email.
9. Back in your secondary account, refresh the page.
10. Select the Forward a copy of incoming mail to option and make sure your new forwarding address is listed in the first drop-down menu.
11. In the second drop-down menu, choose what you want Gmail to do with your messages in that secondary account, such as keep Gmail's copy in the Inbox or archive Gmail's copy.
12. Click Save Changes at the bottom of the page.

Now, you should be able to see emails from both accounts in the same spot.

To send emails from the second account
Last, in order to send out emails from the primary and the secondary account in the same inbox, you should set up the "send mail as" feature. To set up the send mail as feature:
1. Click the gear icon in the top right
2. Select Settings
3. Select the Accounts tab (or Accounts tab, if you're using Google Apps).
4. Under Send mail as, click Add another email address.
5. In the 'Email address' field, enter your name and alternate email address.
6. Choose one of two options:
7. Use Gmail's servers to send your mail (this is easier to set up)
8. Use your other email provider's SMTP servers (we recommend this option for professional mail accounts or domains). Note for Google Apps users: Depending on your domain type, this feature may be disabled by default. Talk to your administrator if you have any questions.

Now, when you're sending an email in your inbox, simply click "from" and choose which email address you'd like to send from.

How do I find out which Google Account email addresses my alternate email address is associated with?


If your alternate email is another gmail account, you could add a period to it. It will be considered a different email but will still deliver mail to the same place. Also try logging into your alternate email and searching for any kind of confirmation email you may have received.

How can I make google accept my login instead of insisting on making me create a new account?


In an article titled, "Email already exists," at: https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/69849?hl=en

Google Help advises:
If you see this message when you try to create or change your account username, it's possible that you've already created a Google Account with that username. It's also possible that someone else accidentally entered your email address when creating a Google Account, but was never able to verify email ownership.
To reclaim your Google Account, please follow these steps:
  1. Visit the password-assistance page.
  2. Enter your username (your full email address).
  3. Type the letters shown in the distorted picture into the appropriate field.
  4. Click Submit. You'll receive a message at the address registered as your Google Account username. Follow the instructions in this message to reset your password.
After you've regained access to this account, you can either delete the account, or change the username on the account to another valid email address. You'll then be able to change the email address on your other account to this email address.
=====
I hope this works for you!

How do I add another Gmail address to my computer?


Hi Richard
following is a cut & past information from Google and I hope it helps in your quest.

Adding Gmail

If you add Gmail to your Google Account, your account's primary username will permanently change to yourusername@gmail.com.
After you add Gmail, the original email address associated with your account will become your alternate email address. If you have verified your original email address before adding Gmail, you will be able to sign in using this email address.

Adding Gmail to an existing Google Account
  1. Go to mail.google.com.
  2. Click Sign up for Gmail.
  3. At the top of the page, click If you already have a Google Account, you can sign in here. You'll be redirected to a sign-in page.
  4. Use your existing Google Account username and password to sign in. On the next page, you'll see a shortened Gmail sign-up form where you can choose your Gmail username
I hope this helps.

How do I change my screen name


Change your username If you use Gmail with your Google Account, it's not currently possible to change your Gmail username after you've registered unless you want to delete Gmail from your account and use a different, non-Gmail address for your Google Account. You can also create another Google Account with a different Gmail username.
If you don't use Gmail with your Google Account, you can change your account username to another email address at any time. Your username is the full email address you used to create your account.
To change the email address on your account, just follow these steps:
  1. Visit the Google Accounts homepage.
  2. Sign in to your account.
  3. Click Edit in the Email section.
  4. Enter your new email address and your current password.
  5. Click Save email address.
Once you've saved the change, you should receive a verification message at the email address you just entered. To complete the change, you'll need to click the verification link in this message. You should also receive a message at your old email address confirming that we've registered the change to your account. If you don't receive the verification email, check your spam folders or request a new email.
Note:
  • You can't change the email address on your account to an existing Gmail address, but we invite you to add a new Gmail address to your Google Account.
  • You can't change the email address on your account to an email address that's already associated with a Google Account.
  • If you want to make your alternate email address the new primary address, you'll first need to delete your alternate email address from the account.
  • The account username that you choose needs to be an active, valid email address that you can access.

I tried to add an email account in my Google acct, but when I fill in the email field, a prompt message says it's taken by another Google account. What gives?


When you fill in the email field you need to select the new email address you are trying to add. If it says that name is taken then it is either taken by your or someone else using that email address.

Google gmail problem.


Just go to gmail directly http://www.gmail.com, you should get a screen where you can sign in on the right side.  You can use this more complicated link, that has been "shrunk"  http://tinyurl.com/5sqzhe 

Cut and paste either of these links into your browser.   If you don't get a screen that looks like the one attached, something is very wrong.
