Invent an address such as Paulman64xyz@mailinator.com. Make it really unique. Use this to receive emails

Go to mailinator.com and enter that address and anything sent to it will be there. The address is not private - anyone can log into it and the stuff self destructs after a few hours!

Yes the point is to NOT get another gmail account. Google free email accounts. Then use that to provide a contract to Google so that van tell you what's wrong

It's not that I'm obsessed with gmail, it's just that that's what my other 2 accounts, plus the one I created that was disabled immediately, were. I want to stay with gmail so I can contact them to try to get my 2 original ones re-enabled, but wouldn't know how to contact them if I had an email account with someone else cos presumably any 'contact us' link would be for whichever email provider I was with. So if I was with, say, Yahoo for instance, if they had a 'contact us' link, then surely that would be to contact Yahoo, not gmail? Sorry if I'm not making any sense; I know what I'm trying to say but finding it difficult to put into words. Anyway, I'm giving up on it for now as it's stressing me out too much. I can still send and receive Purestorm emails through the site's internal system, so it's not a total disaster. Thanks everyone for all your advice and suggestions though, I really do appreciate it.

It sounds to me like Gmail doesnt like you...

When they realised something was wrong with your account they have probably now put your IP address (the method of tracking all devices connected to the internet) to a banned list and thats why new accounts are getting disabled immediately...

Create an account with another provider... and use that... and then query gmail as to why you are blocked.

But I don't have a clue what I've done for them to not like me; one day both accounts were fine, the next, having not written anything on either account the day before, they were disabled. I really haven't the slightest idea why. And your suggestion to set up an email account with someone else then contact gmail to ask why they've disabled me; well that's the stumbling block for me cos I wouldn't have a clue how to contact gmail from a non gmail account. As I said in my previous post, surely any 'contact us' link on any email account I set up with someone other than gmail would only be to contact whichever email company I'm using at that time, so 'contact us' if I was with, say, Yahoo would only be to contact Yahoo, surely? How would I contact one email company from another one? Seriously, it's way over my head all of this, and tbh, apart from being frustrated at not knowing the reason why gmail have actually disabled my accounts, I'm probably better off just not having any email accounts full stop if it's this complicated.

Paul, rather than stringing this saga out further why don't you just book yourself some time on a computer at your local library or community centre and then ask one of the staff to sit beside you and help you sort your problem?

Thanks Bob, everything you said makes perfect sense and I really should follow your advice. Trouble is, I know 'me', and that 'me' has a propensity for impatience and getting extremely flustered when trying to learn things beyond my abilities, so I know (unfortunately) I'm likely to throw a childish strop and storm out of any computing lesson if I was struggling with it. So, for now at least, I'm not going to bother with trying to sort this email stuff out anymore. As I said above, I can still send and receive emails through Purestorm's internal system, so that's fine by me
