Ive been using my uwalumni.com account to log into Google Apps (Calendar, Docs, etc) for a long time! Will having this new account with GMail change my existing Google services?
You can now try to restore Google calendar, photos, contacts, etc. absolutely free. You need to really think about backing up Google apps and visit a useful source. This procedure will help to avoid problems and in case of data loss just use the backup.
Unfortunately, yes. Google doesn’t allow duplicate account addresses, regardless of whether they’re Gmail accounts or Google Apps accounts. After we create your new Gmail account, if you try to log in to Google Apps using your uwalumni.com email address, you won’t be able to access your existing data, which might be quite substantial. However, your data is perfectly safe and there is a very simple fix. You can choose one of two routes: 1) You can change your e-mail address on your Google Apps account to something other than your uwalumni.com account (such as a Yahoo or Hotmail address), or… 2) You can contact us and we can delete your newly created Gmail account. You can then create a new uwalumni.com account with a different username and we’ll migrate your old mail to it. Q: Help! I can’t login! A: If you’ve tried to log in to the new Gmail system and your password seemed to fail, e-mail us and we will reset your password as soon as we can. If you have more questions, contact us.
