Change email address in Gmail

Change email address in Gmail

It is not possible to change the address in Gmail email, as in other popular services. But you can always register a new box and redirect to it. The impossibility of renaming your email is because only you will know the new address, and users who want to send you a message will find an error, or they will send a message to the wrong person. Mail services cannot do this automatically. Only the user can do it.

Registering a new email and transferring all the data from the old account is effectively the same as changing the mailbox name. The main thing is to notify other users that you have a new address, so that there are no misunderstandings later.

Move the information to the new Gmail

As mentioned above, to change your Gmail address without much loss, you need to migrate your important data and create a redirect to a fresh email account. There are several ways to do it.

Method 1: Import the data directly

For this method, you will have to directly specify the mail from which you want to import data.

  1. Create a new email in Jimmail.

  3. Go to the new email and click the gear icon in the upper right corner, and then go to "Settings"..
  4. Go to the tab "Account and import"..
  5. Click on "Import mail and contacts".
  6. In the window that opens, you will be asked to enter the email address from which you want to import the contacts and emails. In our case, from the old mail.
  7. Then click ... "Keep going"..
  8. When the test passes, proceed again.
  9. Another window will ask you to connect to your old account.
  10. Accept access to the account.
  11. Wait for the verification to complete.
  12. Check the items you want and confirm.
  13. Your data will now, after a while, be available in the new email.

Method 2: Create a data file

This option consists of exporting your contacts and emails to a separate file that you can import to any email account.

  1. Go to your old Jimmail mailbox.
  2. Click on the icon "Gmail". and from the drop-down menu, select "Contacts"..
  3. Click on the icon with the three vertical bars in the upper left corner.
  4. Click the button "Plus". and go to "Export".. In the updated design, this feature is not currently available, so you will be prompted to downgrade to the old version.
  5. Follow the same path as the new version.

  6. Select the parameters you want and click "Export".. The file will download to your computer.

  7. Now, on your new account, go to the path "Gmail". - "Contacts". - "More" - "Import"..
  8. Upload the document with your data by selecting the desired file and importing it.

As you can see, there is nothing complicated in these options. Choose the one that works best for you.
