Email @gmail.com Is No longer Verified By Google

Webmasters who log into Google Webmaster Tools might notice a new notification message on top that reads "[email protected] is no longer verified by Google. Please verify the address or select a different email address". Email in this case is the email address of the user logging into the webmaster tools.

The message itself is not clickable and there are no links on the page or on other pages in the Webmaster Tools that would allow the user to verify the email address or provide additional explanation about the error displayed on the page.

The email address shown on top and in the notification area is [email protected] and not a gmail.com address.

Several webmasters have noticed the issue and posted a support request on Google's Webmaster Central help forum. John Mu, a Google employee has forwarded the issue to the Google Webmaster team.

We guess that it has something to do with the internal switching of email addresses from google.com to googlemail.com for those users. There is no confirmation yet from Google other than the message from the Google employee that the team was informed about the issue.

No negative side effect seems come out of this as far as we can tell.

A workaround for the issue was posted the next day by one of the posters who experienced the issue. According to the post, it is enough to switch to "don't forward messages" and then back to "forward to @gmail.com" to resolve the issue and make the notification go away in Webmaster Tools.

This should resolve the issue for all users who received it.
