Hi there and welcome Harold

What exactly fails when you try to reset your password?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The question process asks questions I cannot answer so at the end of the process I get a rejection.
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

Have you used the Gmail account at all ever Harold? Is this the first time?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I think that after I set it up that I may have tried a couple of emails as a test but I'm not positive.
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

ok, then its best just to make a new account Harold.

There is a manual request you can make to Google to try to get access but it does take a number of days and a lot of the time if you cannot give the information requested, you wont get access.

Create a new account here

Make sure to give your mobile number in the event you forget the password ***** as you can reset it using your phone.

then use this account going forward.

If you have any problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
