Welcome to, my name is Dustin.
I'm sorry to hear about the issue you are having, I will do my best to help you resolve it.

Gmail can be a bit strict with their password ***** protocol.. let me ask you this.

Do you have any computers or phones that are still signed into your gmail account?

Also, did you ever sign into your gmail account from a computer?

And also, is it important to get back the same exact gmail account ( if you havent used it in two years, could we not just make you a new account if theres nothing important in the old account?)

Thank you for reading and replying in full to my questions, I look forward to assisting you.

Dustin S.
