If you're on a Mac, try searching with Spotlight for -- you might get lucky and have that old email address in the mail program, or elsewhere.


If you don't discover the gmail address on your local computer, then you will likely have to call Google support to see if they can authenticate you and recover your email address.  Once you know the email address, you can goto and attempt to authenticate for a password reset. Then you'll be able to login at

hi John,


There are various options before to go with the verification and reset.


If you are using a manager account to manage various other AdWords accounts, you may cross check in the Mail box with linking invitation/confirmation mail or any other email where you have communicated with any of the client and shared either email ID or customer ID of the AdWords account.




You may also get the customer Id of the account if you have imported it in the AdWords editor.


If you have a specialist assigned from the AdWords then you can also consult him/her directly.
