I'm using Macmail and have set up a gmail account. Everything technically works fine, it sends and receives mail, the problem is, when I try to send something it seems to take forever. The little grey things keep spinning by the send menu and it doesn't seem to catch, for lack of a better word.
I'm using a wireless router but other than this the speed and connection strength are great so I'm confused.
Any idea how to fix this, Outlook on my PC seemed much snappier.

I just switched my brother-in-law to Gmail so he could go from Pop to IMAP. He is having the exact same issue. It seems to take forever for the to send out the email. Did you ever find a solution/cause?

While Gmail can be slow once in a while, it is generally quite fast. I don't use it through Apple mail but it directly connects to my isp account to retrieve mail, or lately, I've been changing my email address so that it all goes directly to Gmail. Point is, it sounds like the problem is in the Apple mail end of things.
