If you have a Gmail account that was once a Google Business Account and you’d like to change it over to personal, there are a few things you’ll need to do. You’ll need to create a new Google account with the same username format as your previous one to gain access to the data protection and analytics that Google provides for businesses.
In addition, you will want to make sure that your email addresses are consistent across all of your accounts and platforms. This will help your recipients keep track of where their emails are coming from, and it’s an important step to maintaining a professional brand image. Luckily, there is an easy way to do this!
After you’ve set up your new email address, you can now use it! All your incoming emails will be forwarded to your new address. To send a message using your new Gmail address, go to the Settings page, select See all settings, and then click on Forwarding and POP/IMAP. In the Forwarding section, click Add a forwarding address, and then enter your email address that you’d like to use as an alias.
