Clicking on the link will has a password reset email message sent to the secondary email mailbox. After receiving the email, follow the link to reset the password.

    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.
    • 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.

    Normally this error comes when you are sending any mail having some attachment.Sometimes when you send an attachment to somebody by Gmail, it will occur an error named 008, this is caused by the size of your attachment, it must be not larger than 25MB, now I will tell you about how to fix Gmail Error 008.

    While signing in or using Gmail, you receive this error:

    A conflict with software on your computer, browser cache that needs to be cleared, or a temporary problem on the Gmail server.

    On the Yahoo Mail sign-in page, click the "I can't access my account" link.

    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.

    First try going opening your browser of choice and going to mail.google.com. Ideally the page should load and you should be able to log in there. If your page times out (you get an error instead of the login page) then it's possible that some program on your computer is blocking the connections, or that your router is blocking the connections. Try ending any programs you're not using (including any that might be hiding in the icon tray) one at a time until you can get access to gmail again. If you can't find any that are blocking it, it might be a setting on your router.
    Any additional information you can provide would be helpful.
