Customer Question
On the 21st of January...
On the 21st of January I had Cox Comminications fix a virus I had. After all was said and done my email address ended up gamil.com instead of gmail.com. My mail still comes through Outlook OK, but when I try to go to my email on Google it only invites me to open a new account, showing my 'current account' with the spelling error. I asked for an account PIN but it does not come through Outlook. I have changed the error in the 'current account' box, but it only comes back with the error. I do not want to change my email address, as that would entail a bit of a hassle to let everyone know.
