I have opened a Gmail account; my login and email address are the same. I am wanting to establish an email address for my wife but the instructions confuse me. It mentions addl. email addresses and also alternate addresses.
Are they the same thing? Gmail also point out "You can't use a Gmail address as an alternate" Should my wife open her own Gmail account? Thanks for your help.
I think your wife should open her own email address in the same way that you did. Don't know what "addl. email addresses" means but alternate email is so they can send you a new password if you forget it.
Thanks for your reply Marvin. (Addl. was me being lazy and not typing additional. Sorry.)
I successfully set up gmail for myself, sending & receiving emails without any problem. The next day, The gmail account opening procedures were completed for my wife: her own login/email address, password etc.
Since then my gmail account & gmail address has vanished!! I have trawled through the gmail troubleshooting sections etc which I find difficult to follow. Can anyone explain what I have done wrong?
I use XP & Firefox as browser. I have 'searched' gmail for the email address which i briefly used, gmail cannot find it.
