#39 Gmail - Change Email Address

Hi ya!

Your email address is Joe@gmail.com. Yo want to change it to Joey@gmail.com. But you can’t. You ask why not?
The answer to your question is because once you create a Gmail account, you can’t change your email address to another name. No matter what.
Even if the name you want to use belongs to a deleted account. You can’t change it to that.
You ask why you can’t use the address of a deleted account.
Because Google never recycles deleted accounts once they have been deleted for a few weeks due to identity theft issues.
Google also reserves some email addresses to prevent spam and overall abuse.

And, yeah. That’s all!
