    PHow can you delete a gmail account by mistake? It gives you plenty of warning when you try to delete one PI don't think there will be an easy way to recover a lost gmail account.

    I think your chances of recovery have just got even smaller.

    So, can u tell me how can i recover it?
    I was sent email for Google before, but i haven't receive any response.
    I hear from Google Forums that, my account can be retrieved after nine months.?

    After 9 months of no activity, Google deactivates the account, deletes all stored messages and recycles it. This means that the name of the account can be registered again, but with all messages gone.
    I think, but not sure, that the same will happen if you deactivate the account yourself.
    Have you tried registering another account with the same name?

    That won't work. Take this example:

    I create [email]XXXX@gmail.com[/url]. I decide that I don't want it any more so I delete it.

    2 days later, Joe Schmoe, wants to create a gmail account that just so happens to be [email]XXXX@gmail.com[/url].

    So he does, and since I just deleted XXXX it is now available for him to use.

    Even though I just deleted the account doesn't mean that I would want whomever the next person is to see my personal emails. Therefore, when you delete the account, it is gone. Big Fat Goose Egg, 0. Sorry, buddy, but your gmail emails for that account are long gone. I don't know ANYONE that keeps information that insignificant for 5 months. Google doesn't care to keep your emails. What benefit would they have?

    Yes, at this point, you can't re-use that account. If there is any hope of recovering the contents of it, you will just have to keep trying Gmail support, and hope that they reply.
    There is basically nothing else you can do, yourself.

    If you need a gmail invite to reregister then try my GMail Invite Spooler at : http://michael-m.co.uk/gmail.php . But I don't think you will have much luck in recovering your old mail. I would urge everyone to make backups of their mail using a mail client like Mozilla Thunderbird.

    Thats Incorrect. When gmail was initially launched few years ago I had created one account and deleted it later on (trial basis). I am still trying to create a new one with same user name and it does not let me create one. So I usually check by sending an email to the same email address I want, but it always bounces back.
    So I dont think gmail recycles username even after 9 months.

    You will not get back your gmail account. It will not be possible one.

    I do not think there is a way where one can retrieve an account that has been deleted. I only know that Google will retrieve your account details if you lose/ or forget your password. If you delete your account it is gone for good.

    you may try to write an e mail and inform the google community and ask for there advice.
    there is a hope that you may recover your account but the chances of recovering your data is even lesser.
    but you may try. After all there is no harm in trying.
