How to Perform Email Account Recovery

To send and receive emails, you will need to have an email account. If an email is the equivalent of a letter, think of your email account as the address people need to send the letter to. It contains information about yourself - username, password and email settings. User are able to set up an email account to any email service provider such as Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo!Mail etc. Each email service provider has its own advantages and disadvantages when it comes to delivering their services to users.

Deleting your email account is a major decision, especially if it is an account that you have used to access other online services. This is especially true if you have a Gmail account that you use to access other Google products such as Google Drive, Play Store or Blogger.

If you do not mean to delete your account, you are able to recover your Gmail account if you act quickly - you will usually have two business days to retrieve your account back.
