Congratulations on creating your brand new Gmail address, xxxxxxxxx@gmail.com. Please keep this email for your records, as it contains an important verification code that you may need should you ever encounter problems or forget your password. You can login to your account at http://mail.google.com/ Enjoy! The Gmail Team

Verification code: xxxxxxxx-xxxxxxxx-xxxxxxxxxx

I have lost access to that email account. Where or how do I use that verification code?

You've lost access to your gmail account, but not your secondary email address to which that email was sent? Have you tried going through the "Forgot my password" procedure? –  w3d Apr 3 '13 at 14:53
I have tried everything and nothing is currently working. My only hope is that verification code. –  Jay Apr 3 '13 at 14:57
