Do you want to delete your Gmail account? You must delete a Gmail Account if you want to replace Gmail with another email service that you prefer or if you want to get rid of an embarrassing username.

Deleting a Gmail account can not be resolved. When you remove your Gmail account, all of your emails and account settings will be deleted absolutely. You also can not access your account and this address can not be used for anyone else the next time. 

Nevertheless, Deleting a Gmail account does not mean that your Google Account will be deleted. Except for the Gmail account, other services in Google including Google Drive, Calendar, Google Play, and others can be used normally. In this case, Google Support will ask you about creating an alternative email address.

It turns out that your Google or Gmail account can be recovered. Time, on the other hand, is of the essence in this situation. There's a chance you can reclaim your account if only a few days have passed. The longer you wait, the less probable it is that you will be able to recover. As a result, making a backup copy of your data is highly suggested. You'll have all the information you need this way.
