Access email address changed, no way to change it back?

Hi all, we have had a Google Analytics account for the last few years. Two months ago we migrated our business email over to Gmail for Work. Since doing this, Google has changed the Analytics admin account login to oldname%domain@gtempaccount.com and won't allow us to use our email addresses to administer the Analytics site (it tells us that our accounts are being migrated). It seems there is no support available for this service, so it looks like our only option is to use our new email addresses but we are concerned that Google will delete the temporary email address they have assigned us and we will lose access altogether.

 

Is there a way of changing this address back or assigning a new admin account?

 

Thanks

Hi Santosh, thanks for your reply. We tried this but unfortunately it seems we will lose our valuable data associated with the sites if we do this. I was hoping that we could associate the account with the original email address and have it back as it was. It seems Google aren't making this easy for us.
