How do I delete an account? I created another account that will be more convienent to remember. i cannot use my full name in any sense b/c it was already taken so i had to get a little creative. Now I have 2 accounts and I only want one.

Unless you just want to set a forward filter (which would send all incoming mail to your old address to your new one), here's how you can delete your account (of course, you don't really have to do that, unless you want to... I suppose Google might delete it anyway after a long time of inactivity):

- Sign in to your old Gmail
- Click on "Settings" on the top right
- Click on the "Accounts" tab
- Click on "Google Account settings"
- In the new window, click "Delete all account info" and follow possible instructions (I won't click that far...)
