Cannot cancel Google e-mail account. I want to cancel so I can get a gmail account since Wildblue changed platforms. When I try to cancel, I get a message that says I cannot that Wildblue.net is the administrator. How can I get the wildblue.net e-mail account cancelled?

If you want a gmail account then go get one you don't have to delete your wildblue account to do that. Other option Old Labs just posted the other day a link to were you can maybe tie your existing email back to Google so you can post to YouTube and use Google drive

Thanks and I'm aware of that.  I'd like to use the same user name I've had for the many years I've been with Wildblue and end it with gmail.com. I want to start using a gmail account exclusively and it would be a lot eaisier. I would think that since Wildblue/Excede is no longer using the Google platform, I should be able to cancel. Plus Google gave me a warning that since Wildblue is the administrator, they have access to all of my google apps. That kinda of sucks.

Yep, but I'm sure it's me with the Wildblue account.  I was hoping that if I could cancel the WB the user name what become available.

It shouldn't have anything to do with the "@wildblue.net" address.  The straight gmail address is a separate entity.

Have you considered a Yahoo mail account or maybe a custom domain?
