I am using gmail with my Mail application and it has been working properly for over 6 month, until today, when I noticed that I stopped receiving emails, even though when separately logging in to gmail via a web browser or via my iphone I certainly received new messages.

Also what happened, I tried to send myself a trial message to see if i receive it or not. The message was clearly sent as my iphone received it and i was able to look at it fine, however within the Mail application on the mac the message was "stuck" being halfway sent on the activity monitor and still showing in my outbox and still showing being sent with the little rotating circle next to sent.

I heard it could be a too small or too large email .... that just sounds "crazy", so if any of you have a good idea how to resolve this I would appreciate it, thanks!


Now, I just noticed that in the "recovered messages" folder under "on my mac" there is a message that contained many pics as attachments, I tried to delete it, but that did not change the problem and Mail kept on downloading it as recovered...the "get mail" button simply does not do anything once clicked
