I don't mean like change the email account with which a given site will contact you (such as Mario Wiki has your email address for your account, but that's not what I mean.) What I mean is literally change the address used to contact your email account without just making a new email account - so it doesn't break everything you've signed up for with that email address. I have an old email account that I've owned since I was about 11 and I want to keep that account because I use it for important things but I don't like the address that 11 year old me wrote for it so any chance I can change it? Or will I have to either keep that address or make a new account?

Likely not. I don't think it's possible to redirect your old email address into a new one without simply making a new one; your email is used for a lot of things and sites always ask you if you're using this email address and whatever. Just make a new one, you're probably going to need a new one later in life anyway.

It's not possible to just change an email address and call it a day, but it is possible to create a new one and use something like Outlook to move the existing emails to the new one address by simply dragging them over. I don't know how your email provider would respond to that though, so proceed with caution if you do take this route.

So hi it´s me GreenThunder and I need some help to get my old account back
So I deleted my password and I made an account for some help

So my tabs keep refreshing even though I had only two,so I deleted a lot of files to make some space for background task,but that did not work my laptop still reloads every time i go to a new tab.So I searched google and it said to delete my history so I did but I accidently deleted my saved password with it.I feel dumb for not writing it down and I can´t use verification emails so yeah.I quickly made a random account on MarioWiki for help IDK why.So I thought I could make a new account and delete the old one(GreenThunder) but this was my old account i am using right now.So I thought maybe some one can help me.sorry if this is confusing I am tired

If you haven't done it already I suggest contacting the mods for getting your old account back.

As for the original topic (which is pretty old now), the answer is no. Gmail let's you add aliases to the end. Eg: if your email address is email@gmail.com you can add the alias with email+alias@gmail.com. But I think what you really want is to make a new email account and forward your important emails to your original one.
