Finding your email address is easier than you think
If you use Gmail, you already have a Google Account. New Google Accounts come with Gmail, so you should already have a Gmail address if you've created your account recently. If you already have a Google Account and deleted your Gmail account, you can add Gmail to your current Google Account. When you add Gmail, your Gmail address will become the primary username on your account. It will be what others see when you share information, such as documents or photos, from your Google Account. Your original email address will become the recovery address on your account.
