Customer Question
Hi, I have...

Hi, I have not used GMAIL for almost a year. Today I downloaded the latest client version and attempted to activate my 5 email accounts. I successfully got 4 working. I screwed up entering the password ***** the 5th one - probably a typo. I have tried following the recovery instructions but I am very computer illiterate and unable to follow the instructions. PLEASE HELP. The email address in question is***@******.***. and the password ***** D4404gJ4621l. I tried using the client instructions but could not follow them. The email address that works is very similar - [email protected] Thank you very much for your help. D.J.

Technician's Assistant: How long have you had this issue with your Gmail account?

2 or 3 hours

Technician's Assistant: How do you access your email most often? On a phone or tablet, or through a web browser?

Incredimail or gmail client

Technician's Assistant: What troubleshooting have you tried?

Incredimail offers a "help" screen but it is too technical for me. I am very computer illiterate and 78 years old.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Email Expert to know before I connect you?

What can I tell you that will help?

It was probably a typo and very close to the correct password.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Can you get the correct password ***** google?
Email technician: Jess M., Computer Support Specialist replied 8 months ago

Unfortunately, no, we cannot retrieve the current password, no way to do it. Please let us just reset it. Several failed login attempts can lock the account so guessing the password ***** ***** ideal. Please tell m e the mobile number.

Unfortunately this was an unsatisfactory experience that did not resolve my problem. The "expert" may have been able to fix the situation if it had not been for a communications problem. I did not understand his questions which made my responses difficult for him. He could not bring his understanding of the problem down to my ability to understand, therefore, our conversation was of no value. I appreciate his effort but in this instance the system did not work to a satisfactory conclusion. As advertised please issue a 100% satisfaction guarantee refund to my credit card. Thank you, *****

Hi,

Thank you for writing back and I am very sorry about the miscommunication.

Were you able to get the password ***** created for your email account?
