How about: "FINAL NOTICE: YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE CLOSED UNLESS THE FOLLOWING ACTIONS ARE TAKEN"
or: "To reset your password, enter the email address we have on file."

The problems are endless.


How would it not bouncing back help you? You can't access it anyhow.

I think the number of accounts closed are in the hundreds. The people posting here alone probably account for 100 accounts then there are many more that didn't read this.

No, that would be the hog.

Ah, yes, I misunderstood your question. Maybe pigs don't mess with Google...

If we're keeping a running tally, put me down for nine.

Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Thoughts?

Though about messing with Google? Don't or they may just shut your account!

He wasn't saying that bouncing is worse than not bouncing.
He's saying that bouncing emails instead of letting them get saved is terrible.

For example if google decides to allow access to the account again you still lose all your new emails for the a minimum of a few weeks.
Live forever or die trying.
