Customer Question
Trying to verify my...

Trying to verify my new email address. The email you sent me on Oct 28 had a "Verify now>" link, but when I hit on it, I was sent to the Google home screen. What gives?

Technician's Assistant: Who is your email provider (Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook, etc.)?

Email provider is Gmail.

Technician's Assistant: How do you usually access Gmail? On a phone or tablet, or through a web browser?

I access all my mail using the Apple "Mail" program on my iMac.

My old emails were with Verizon.

Who is the "you" referred in your question? Google?

FYI - We are not Google. The website you are visiting is JustAnswer, a paid site providing professional support services with guaranteed quality. We do support Google, because Google doesn't provider peer-to-peer support to their free, consumer products such as Gmail.

In answer to your question, the "you" in my initial email was indeed Google.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Your email said "View response and reply." Of course, I can't do that because of the computer problem that I am asking you to help me fix. When I click on your "View response and reply" I am taken to Google's home page for some reason—not the screen with your response.
