I had the same exact issue. I started using the application specific password generated by Google before I had the issues. When you set up your account in Apple mail, you are asked to enter the application specific password. I had no issues receiving gmail after that, but also could not send gmail through Apple mail. I had to go into the advanced settings ...

As stated before, all this means is your outgoing server credentials are incorrect in the Mail App. In order to check the outgoing server's credentials go to Mail menu > Preferences > Accounts > find your Gmail account. Click on your gmail account then under "outgoing server" check what server is chosen by default then click "edit smtp server list" at ...

I have also gotten this error recently and the fix is simple. I am not exactly sure where, but somewhere in the mail app (probably in the preferences) there is a setting to change which outgoing mailbox it uses. When it happened to me it was set to an "offline" mailbox and all I had to do was change it to an "online" one. Restarting the mail app may be ...

I actually ended up deleting the hawk image from inside the Gmail Settings.

The challenge is that Gmail uses "Labels" to attach to messages, and messages can have zero or more than one label, while IMAP puts messages in folders (Inbox, Trash, etc) and every message is in one, and only one folder. Thus, when Mail.app tells the Gmail server to delete a message from the Inbox the Gmail server can not relibely tell if it should just ...

Take a look at MailTags from http://indev.ca/MailTags.html - it'll show Gmail Labels in a separate column.

Apple did not change your Gmail profile picture. What is (likely) actually happening is the following: When you add a Gmail account to Mail.app, you can choose to sync contacts with Google. (It might even do it by default. I am not sure because it has been years since I set it up.) If you do so, all of the contacts in Contacts (Address Book) on your Mac ...

You are probably syncing Google contacts to the Contacts app in OS X. If this is the case, you can edit the image by finding your contact card in the Contacts app and clicking the image to choose a new one. This change should then sync to your Google account. If you want to turn contact syncing off for your Google account, you can do so in System ...

As shown on this Wikipedia page, Safari for Windows has not updated in over two years. There is much speculation as to why, but in terms of the Web, a browser that is over two years old is ancient. Gmail likely requires features that are not available in Safari v5.1.7. Therefore you will need to use an alternate browser, such as Chrome or Firefox.

You should check out iPhone email client called Mailburn. They show conversations as chats and remove all quoted text from the messages. Exactly what you are looking for.

The fix is to login to the google account affected, and then go to https://www.google.com/settings/security/lesssecureapps and select "Enable" for the question "Access for less secure apps." Apparently this results from a change Google made several months ago to improve security, which is indeed becoming more and more important as Google accounts are tied ...

Pick 1 and stick with it. I have had similar issues, and wanted to synchronise multiple accounts, AND multiple devices. This is technically hard. For example. What would happen if you have no internet on your phone, but you change the information of 4 contacts from your me.com account. In just a minute later someone changes the information of these ...

Google uses Labels instead of folders, so in Apple's mail the messages with a given label will appear in a folder with that given labels name (assuming the Show in IMAP option is selected in Gmail's Labels setting for any given label). If this doesn't work for you you may want to try out http://mailplaneapp.com for your gmail/os x needs.

I can confirm that the IOS 8 Mail app (and on IOS 7) searches all IMAP mailboxes on all 5 of my mail accounts on different servers when I use the search box via the "All Mailboxes" list item in IOS Mail. It can take a little while sometimes but it always works for me. In Mavericks Mac Mail I leave the Inbox selected when I search otherwise it seems to ...

Inky mail does the similar work to GMail's: sorts messages into cathegories. However, it uses its own algorithm, not reusing GMail's existing tab sorting (so might be less intelligent, but works with any mail).

I tried the rebuild command on Lion. I expected a "short time" wait, but after hours, I'm still slowly recovering the lost content of all the messages, with no attachments at all... Now I remember why I had been reluctant to try that: instead of recovering the few missing attachments, I lost all of them (despite the proper download option in advance ...

When you archive a message, it moves to the All Mail folder. It does not delete the message from the Gmail account. You can learn more about the Gmail archive feature in Gmail Help. Archive replaces all delete options when you use a Gmail account, including tapping the Trash icon while you view a message and selecting Edit to manage multiple messages. You ...
