Forgotten password but email account now disabled Help!

  1. Hallo,

    I have two wordpress accounts that I have not used for many months...I have been travelling. I have forgotten the password to my other wordpress account and unfortunately the email that is linked to this wordpress blog has been disabled by gmail. How can I now access my wordpress?!!

  3. the wordpress.com blog I am referring to is http://maryjogilligan.wordpress.com/

  4. Gmail should have a process to recover your account. I recommend following through with that process.

    The only way that we can restore access to the account is if we receive the request from the email address on the account, or if you registered long enough ago to receive an API key, we can also accept that as confirmation of ownership.

  5. I don't know anything about an API key.
    I am hitting a brick wall with gmail as they ask for information to be faxed but don't give a fax number or they ask for a credit card to be used but don't give payment details!!!...I have even visited google offices in person to no avail!

    Can you at least tell me what will happen to the page that is currently published? It has been inactive for many months now...will it be deleted after a certain time period of inactivity? I hope that this could happen as the email contact information on the blog is now useless! Please advise?
