Google’s Gmail is a free email service that allows users to access their email on the web or by using third-party programs that synchronize email content through POP or IMAP protocols.

I have a user who accidentally created a gmail account that took over a previous gmail account and now they can't change it back. When she tried to delete the new account it says "The address used to identify your Google Account to you and others. You can't change this address". I don't know how she was able to change it first place since now says you can't delete/change the main address. The old address shows as 'alternate emails'.

Is there a way to get rid of the new email address but still keep all the google docs under it?

What a mess!

Thank you for your help!

I have changed the mobile number.  Hence changed the e-mail password as well as recovery e-mail. Then I started changing facebook profile.  After 30 minutes I tried logging in but could not log and got message that :

You're trying to sign in on a device Google doesn't recognize, and we don't have enough information to verify that it's you. For your protection, you can't sign in here right now.
Try again later or sign in from a different device.

I also tried thru recovery e-mail but could not log in. Same message was received.

I don't know how to log in now.  Pls. help.
Hello, I have an email inbox with hundreds of emails that are in a fixed format.  All the emails are in gmail which I access through a web browser.  I am attaching a snapshot of a sample email format.

I want to be able to parse the information into an excel spreadsheet where the column names are the names of the fields before the ":" symbol and the values are the whats entered next to them.

What is the best way for me to do that.  Is there a commercially available or open source app that can make this easier?  Email_Snapshot.PNG
How can one use Tags & Filters in Gmail to get phone notifications ONLY for specific messages?  Here is an article written in...2017 that details how to do it but...the instructions start to break down at this step:

Set up notifications on your phone
Launch the Gmail app on your phone, slide open the menu, scroll down to the bottom, and select Settings. In the next window, select the email account where you created the filter. Scroll down and select Manage labels. Another window will open; select the inbox you’re using—it should be the one at the top of the list.

From the bold there above is where the instructions stop being valid for me and can't follow the steps.

What do you think is happening?

Many thanks!!


We recently purchased some chromebooks to use for our mobile users.  These are the types that have cellular cards built in.  We are not a google enterprise customer, and really just want to use these devices to allow our users to launch VMware Horizon Client and log into their hosted desktops.  This works great when you setup a gmail account and add the app.  This however isn't possible on guest mode which is how i really wanted to use these.  I envision a person just launching guest mode and clicking the horizon client and logging in, simple as that.  I really don't want any data stored on the machine or it being used for anything other than web browsing and launching that specific application.  Is there a way to add items to guest mode on the chromebooks?


I want to ask if you can help me to find out the owner (the identity of a person ) by the given Gmail or mobile.
I suspect that I used spam/fake website.

I usually view all my gmail in the web browser.  I recently connected my gmail account to Outlook on my laptop and it downloaded some 15gb of emails in IMAP format.

I now wish to remove this from my laptop to recover space but am worried I might mess this up and delete emails or remove a mailbox which then syncs "nothing" back to gmail and I lose all my email.

Could I pls have simple step instructions to ensure I can fully remove all the emails I have locally on my laptop, recover storage space and leave my gmail account intact?

Hi All,

I want to email to several hundreds of users from database using Laravel.

I use gmail SMTP.

I try below code, by I get error. 500 - Internal Server Error.

                    foreach($users as $user){
                        $data = array(
                            'username' => $user->name,
                            'useremail' => $user->email,
                            'message' => $broadcast->message,
                            'subject' => $broadcast->subject,
                            'senderemail' => $sender->email,
                            'sendername' => $sender->name,
                            'attachment' => public_path('files').'/'.$broadcast->file,

What is wrong with those code ?

Thank you.
Can you point me to someone or a group that can help with a GMAIL question.  Google is very difficult to get help from.  When composing a new email in GMAIL, if you click on the "TO", which allows you to view the list of your contacts, the list is in first name order. Even though when going to Contacts separately via the 9 dot matrix, the list is in last name order.  Are there GMAIL options to show the list in last name order when clicking on the "TO" when composing a new email.
One of our users (Outlook 2016, Office365 account) has notified me that her external correspondants have complained they receive calendar invites whenever she updates a meeting with text or an attached file.

I tested this myself with my GMail account and I indeed have received the same invite to accept, not a "meeting was updated".

Anybody have an ideal if this something new and what setting to change in Outlook to have this disabled and make meeting updates behave like Outlook?

Can anyone recommend software/utility for windows 10 or 2016 to download/archive gmail for offline use? I have been using postbox with mixed results and need something more reliable. Even a cheap email server option is on the table - thanks in advance.
I have Outlook 2016 hooked up to my GMail account and I want to both save some space and grab the attachments from 15 years ago.

I've downloaded the Systools program which grabs them from PSTs but is very limited and I'd rather not pay for the full version. Also tried a VB Script.

Is there an easy way to do this or another program that may be recommended?

How does this service work exactly with gmail? I understand that there are similar email tracking services, how would I identify the fact that such emails are being tracked?
Is it possible to work on a google shared document with others in real time and have the ability to chat with them without changing screens to Gmail?

We have a contact form on our website that we are testing.

The form was created using HTML and I used PHP code to send the details through email.

I have it set that a person fills out the contact form, clicks on "submit" button and the details are sent as email to our Gmail address.

As emails kept going to spam, I set that contact form emails are sent from our domain email address to fix this.

These contact form emails sent successfully to our Gmail address but when sent to our domain email address, the email is not received and not in Junk folder (this email address receives and sends emails fine).

We would like to have contact form details sent to our domain email address.

What do we need to do to get this to work?

I have two gmail accounts designated to my personal account. These two accounts ( & ( were created and used years ago (maybe 5 years ago). I want to disassociate with these accounts. I do not remember the current password. I have tried to follow the google instructions about logging into the accounts to do this trough the settings, but when I try to recover the account with a new password I get the messages:
"Unfortunately Google couldn't verify that belongs to you."
"Unfortunately Google couldn't verify that belongs to you."
How do I get rid of these accounts once and for all?
I have a Samsung Note 8 mobile phone that needs a new motherboard and that is locked.  It is a company owned phone and the employee got terminated, turned in his phone but never gave us his gmail information.  We are now locked out of the phone.  I sent the phone to Samsung to unlock it but after running their diagnostics they mentioned the motherboard needs to be replaced. Cost to replace mother board is about $400. Cost to unlock is $80.  Samsung will not unlock the phone without replacing the motherboard. My question is how can I unlock the phone myself.  Is there a proven method. Also I was thinking of replacing the motherboard myself and then sending the phone back to Samsung to unlock it.  Does anyone know a cheaper repair center to replace the motherboard or online easy guide to do it.  Where would be good place to buy the motherboard part.

I haven't used a version of Outlook in nearly 10 years since using Gmail on the web.  I'm having to use it now though on my personal computer.

I installed a full version of Office 2019 a few months ago and when I just opened Outlook now, it started downloading all my gmail emails, some 19,000 of them dating back to 2006.  I'm concerned it might download them to store offline on the laptop and delete them from the gmail server.

Please provide some very easy steps for me to follow to check in the outlook settings to make sure it is not set to remove emails once downloaded.  If I delete them from the computer will it sync it and delete it from the gmail server?

What if I want to remove my gmail account from this outlook program and instead add a different gmail account, will it makes all the emails in one unified box or will it allow me to easily switch between different mail accounts?

I have Outlook 2019 or something like that on my mac.

1. Is there a way of downloading only the 600 specific emails from my gmail account which has some unique label or is or ?

2. Do I use IMAP or pop (I would not want the original emails on the server to be deleted or changed in anyway

3. How then to multiple select emails in outlook and export with headers to MS Word
I have some 600 emails contained within a gmail account.  

I need to not only print each of these emails (ideally as unique email replies without the reply conversations contained below the reply mail) and I need to somehow copy all of those individual emails into a MS Word document or Google document.

Anyone could a bright idea how I can do this?  I've given up at manually doing this at 102 / 600 mails.

Is there a way to backload all historical emails from outlooks etc or even another email provider, into an existing gmail account so that time and date stamps remain?

My gmail accounts starts from 1 January 2010.  I want to back load all my emails from 2000 into its so I can use my mail as an archive.
My family uses a combination of macs, laptops, windows machines and we store the files and other data on the local drive together with manual moving of files to our google drive which has 2 step verification on there.  I need to access these documents when I'm away from my home computers.

I'm always worried that if my gmail account is ever hacked (despite 2-step verification) a lot of personal documents are out in the main domain.  They dont contain passwords just letters and other stuff.

I also do use time machine from time to time to make manual backups but no good if there is a fire as its not stored off site.  Keeping a portable drive offsite also has its own risks if its stolen.

Perhaps I'm overthinking this for a home user, but how do others (and I mean informed people, not a generalised answer) secure their personal and data and back it up with the need to access it through dropbox or google drive)?
Just saw an email in my gmail spam which claims to be from someone who claims to have installed some malware from a visit on an adult web site.  He has part of a password phrase that I use but I have a unique password for each site.

He's obviously asking for money in bitcoin.
Claims to also have video footage of what I've watched and from my macbook air camera.  I doubt the latter as its a mac and no light comes on my camera.  I have two step verification on my gmail and the email address he correctly has is a forwarding domain name e.g. forwards to

Suggestions as to what I should do?  I cant identify the web site where it was taken from, could be a hack from a web site Im not sure.  What good mac detection tools are there?
