Gmail sending and receiving problems

Some of the main problems that occur with Google Mail include people encountering a password hack, complete Gmail outage. Others have problems on iPhone, iPad, Android, Mac, windows devices etc. As well as Gmail users coming forward when they have issues opening the email service on Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer and Outlook.

Sometime opening Gmail can be like a tug of war, one minute you are in and the next minute you are being pulled from the system with no access due to outages, Gmail login issues amongst other problems. If you have any Gmail problems please do list them below.

    I use Microsoft outlook business email, and previously us windows live mail. When using both of these we had problems receiving/sending to gmail accounts – some would go through some would not – even tho it would appear in your sent items folder. any ideas???

  • Richard

    I am in Glasgow and no emails are opening, not even the ones i already had to read.

  • Meboard

    Gmail folder in ‘Sent’ on Mail on iMac has gone!
    Although gmail advise all deleted and cannot be retrieved I have found them under gmail folder in ‘Important’.
    So what has happened there then?
    Is it still safe to use gmail?

  • Maggie

    Gmail is very good and sweet when all up and working in the right manner, but like today when you cannot send emails it becomes the worse thing that can happen when you need to send an important email to a client that could potentially give me 2 years worth of business.

  • Reeves

    This is becoming a joke now, i have lost all my emails in my inbox yesterday then they show up today, ankd i logged out to leave my house and then once returned to login i cannot.

  • Arun

    I just updated my Mozilla Firefox browser and since doing so i have noticed a few Gmail emails have gone, they are not anywhere to be seen even though i know they were before the update. How can i locate and retrieve lost emails?

  • Darcy

    Not able to send emails via Gmail to other business contacts. This needs a fix right now because this is just too frustrating.

    Gmail app is useless, always down and out. Only way i can get to my emails is by iPhone 6 Plus because i do not use laptop etc on the move.

  • Kain

    Complete utter useless piece of garbage, enough said to the service that cannot even let me receive emails.

  • Mark

    Please answer: What is the next best Gmail alternative? comment below – Ready steady GOOOOOOOOO

    Gmail really needs a complete sweep, new dedicated servers, emails actually being sent would be good and of course able to emails sent to me with the ability to open them.

    Gmail is not loading on my desktop, laptop or my mobile devices such as iphone and ipad. So is this an app problem or a gmail server issue?

  • Alanna

    Having Intermittent gmail issues at the moment, seems like emails are coming and going when they want to and not when i want them to. Yesterday i sent an email to a client and they recieved it 4 hours later even though they were near computer all the day.

    I cannot even get onto Gmail today, when I try to login it will not let me in.

  • Benjamin

    Gmail is a complete pile of pants at the moment, no emails are coming through and i know they should because i sent myself emails as a test. No point going over to Yahoo Mail because they have just as many problems. Maybe I should create my own.

    Is gmail down today or something, is there a small glitch in the system? I cannot login to my emails.

    Once again not receiving any emails, I sent myself some emails and they have not come even in the spam area they are not showing. I got a few friends to send me emails and nothing. I even tried opening Gmail in different browsers but nope, nothing, zip nadda. Annoyed is the word of the day.
