Yesterday, I created a new account and assigned that account as one of the managers. I wanted to transfer ownership, but got the message that the new account needs to be a manager for 24hours before ownership can be transferred.
Today, I logged in to transfer ownership, but it appears as though the other account (that I created yesterday) needs to accept the management (or something like that). So I logged out and tried to login with the account that I created yesterday (and verified yesterday via the text message system).
It's telling me that the email address (that I used to create the account yesterday) is not a valid Google accounts email address.
Now I'm stymied. I can't log in to the new account to accept the management and I can't transfer ownership.
I've gone through all the "Help" questions etc. in circles over and over again and there doesn't seem to be any way to contact Google to get help on this.
So I can now access the new account.
But, in my account, when I go to the page, it still says "invited manager" for the new account. When I log in with the new account, I cannot figure out how to accept that invitation.
The new account has to be a manager before I can transfer ownership.
