My GMail account has been missused and the password of the account also changed. Can I know the details of that?

    Venky,

    this sounds like you can no longer access your GMail account. Right?

    Did you try to click the 'Can't access your account?' link underneath the GMail login?

    What happens if you try to reset your password?

    If you cannot reset your password, click the 'Try these troubleshooting tips.' link and under 'What's preventing you from accessing Gmail?' select 'My account has been compromised' to get further support. In this case, Google will ask you to fill in the account recovery form.
