This page is accessed by the "Details" link at the bottom of the gmail web page. I'm not sure there is a way to find out the originating IP of a password recovery request, however it is very unlikely that your gmail account was ...

No. The reason Google doesn’t do this is because it presents a significant security risk. In order to send you your password, Google would have to store it in plain text, which means any attacker who manages to gain access to even part of Google's database of passwords would have a field day.

I run into many sites that dislike + in the email address (though never one that accepts it at first and then rejects it later). Workaround: get a spamgourmet account that forwards to your gmail account. spamgourmet.com lets you create "+"-style addresses without actually using plus signs (like webapps.barrycarter@spamgourmet.com)

Through Google Account Recovery you can recover your password by providing a range of details (such as account creation date, frequent contacts, label names, etc.).
