I am moving to a new ISP and realised that I'm going to have a problem with my email as I use my ISP's provided address. So, being smart, decided to take this opportunity to move to Gmail. I then recalled that I registered an ideal Gmail email address back when it first launched. The account was never used for anything (including Gmail), so it has been dead with no activity. So, I want to use that email address. However, my Google account is all linked up with the ISP email address and uses a different Google account to the account with the nice Gmail email address.
How can I transfer the ownership of
email@example.com over to my currently active Google account?
I have the following setup:
Account1 (created eight years ago and forgotten):
- Acount activity: none
Account2 (created four years ago and still used):
- Gmail: none
- Account activity: loads and current
What I want to achieve:
- Account activity: loads and current from account2
