Gmail Account

I really want to start heavily using AdWords for my band name. However, I deleted my YouTube account right after I set it up a few years ago, only because I typed lower case letters and wanted to reinstate it with capital letters showing in the YouTube account. However, I was unaware that it would make my band name forever unusable and prevent reinstatement on YouTube and Gmail. Nobody is using this name and it's been unavailable for several years... Can you PLEASE reinstate my account or at least make the name eligible for a new account, so that I can register again?

Hi Craig,

I'm afraid no one on this forum will be able to help you much with this. In general, email addresses remain associated with a Google account even after deleting the account. Have you tried logging in to YouTube with your old email address and password? You may be able to reactivate the account.

Best of Luck,
