I have a gmail account & have had for YEARS.

Recently, I ran a cleanup process that deleted all my cookies.

What a mistake.

Now I can't access my gmail. Gmail want's to get cute & figures out my normal email address (NOT gmail) & I can't get at my gmaill mail.

What can I do?

    Than doesn't help.

    I've been there before.

    They don't recognize that I have an account, they want me to set one up, I won't be able to get at the old one where there is mail I need.

    I think Google is CRAZY hard to use.

    They try to assume too much.

    I pretended I forgot my password & went through their shenanigans.

    It WORKED!!
