My same password works and if I sign out and in with out the dot in the middle of my name it logs me in but the name does change to with the dot in it. So they seem like the same account but I can log in to both with out the dot and with the dot.
Yes ago when I started gmail I wanted my name with out a dot but some one else used it. So I guess I my of sign in one day forgetting the dot in my name and made that new gmail. Not sure. Seems like it works good but seems like some error with gmail. I can email the one with out a dot and it works and comes to my gmail.
