Deleting Gmail Account is a simple process that the users can follow and eliminate the existence of the email account. The process of deleting the account will be a permanent one. Once the email account is canceled, all the emails and settings will cease to exist. The user will not be able to send or receive any mail on the same email ID. One important thing to note here is that the user will not lose the other listings associated with the Google Account. The users will still be able to access Google Drive, Calendar, Google Play, etc. The only requirement that Google may ask for is an alternate email ID to access the content.
