Yes. It has its own dedicated email, and I have no idea what it is.
When you try to log on to gmail, click forgot username, hopefully you set up a recovery address that you use...

I can't try to log on if I have no idea what the email address is.

Thanx for the link. 

Elikay posted that link a few days ago. 

It does not help for my issue. 

It sends an email to the linked address. 

It won't help me be I don't know what that address is!

Sorry.  The description of the support page said, 'your email address will be displayed.'  Did I read wrong?

It asks me to enter either a recovery phone number,  or the recovery email.  I don't think I ever set that up.  And if I did,  I don't know what it is. 

I appreciate yor efforts here.

I really don't know what to do.

No!
That is one of the reasons why I need  to access the inked email address.

ETA:  I know my pin,  but after entering the pin,  I get a message that I'm not calling from one of the forwarding numbers and therfore can't access the account.
