Is it possible to change the username of my Gmail address?

Srini Nivas October 5, 2012

Can I change my username in Gmail? I’d like to change the <username> before but keep the old account and email, obviously. Can this be done?

    I can't send emails from my iPhone. It keeps telling me user name or the password for the Gmail is incorrect. What should I do ?

    If only... you could always create a new Gmail account and forward all your mail there. But, as of right now, no you can't change your Gmail username.

    No its not possible but you can create another email id and link it with your older id. And also after enabling POP3 options in your new id settings will allow you to import all your old emails and also any future email.

    No dude, this feature ain't not available right now. But you can add a forwarding address to a new account of desired username! Hope this help...:) It's better to use outlook, i think u can change username in it.

    No, and so far I have found that no ISP or email "handlers" choose not to get involved with changing usernames or email addresses. They will, however, allow you to create another. Just how many you can have is something is not known, but I'm sure they have their limits ...

    Not possible to change it to another ID. But you can forward any incoming mail from one account to another address.

    No you can't do that but alternatively you can create another email id and link it to previous email thereafter you don't have to login separately.

    It doesn't look like it's a possibility at this point.

    "If you use Gmail with your Google Account, it's not currently possible to change your Gmail username after you've registered."

    As far as I know it is not possible. Even I had the same problem. I took some funny gmail address when I was a kid and now I cannot change it. The only thing we can do is to create another one and forward all your old email address mails to the new one.
