Gmail is the best web mail I have ever used and I’m using it for more then 3 years, most of my important accounts is connected to Gmail.
probably you should reconsider reading my article on Your gmail is hacked: crosscheck
Tonight when I was sleeping one of my friend called me to say your Orkut account is gone and I was shocked as I have used orkut extensively in past few years.
I opened my Gmail account and the message which i got is “your Gmail account is blocked”
I started feeling numb at the very moment because I know the consequences of loosing my primary account, I tried logging into my other Google services that includes blogger , Google analytics, Google webmaster tool
everything was gone for me.
I emailed Google about it then and there and they returned with an email which asked me to provide the details of my account so that they can look into the issue,
By that time I have lost my hope of getting back my account and the only thing which I was looking for an answer from them ” WHY my account?”
I almost submitted that form probably 5 times in which I had to submit lots of thing like time when I created my account, frequently emailed user and lots of other details which only an account holder can know.
finally after 5 hrs I got a reply from Gmail team saying I can now reset my account as it has been activated.
- The things which scared me after I realized that I lost my gmail account:
- Lost control over lots of account which is related to my Google account
- Lost contact to so many people/friends whom I get in touch via email/IM
- Lots of Email important one
- I’m about to join accenture and the only mode of communication is Email.
There are many which I don’t need to explain because I’m sure you can think of whats the feeling of a common person who lost his email account.
My sincere thanks to Google team for reactivating my account back.
