    My wife can't remember her password, but all gmail wants to do is send the reset to her account WHICH she can't access. Anyone know of a workaround? Gmail is useless when it comes to password resets. I and pretty much everyone here have reset a million passwords, but these guys are giving us the brick wall. Any help fllow Gators?

    I haven't had to recover a GMail password but the process seems pretty reasonable based on a small amount of research. It looks like they try to let you try previous passwords and move into security questions next. You don't indicate what steps you and she have taken so it's not clear how much help this article about the steps to recover a GMail password might be.

    The article does provide a way to actually contact Google.

    Hope this helps.

    You better hope she remembers the security passwords. I just had to open a new gmail because it was asking me passwords from 5 years ago.
