Gmail not sending emails

1. CHECK THE GMAIL SERVERS (GOOGLE)

Google servers may be down due to maintenance or unplanned issues, but it is very rare. Google's Workspace Status. Check to see if Gmail was down in the past. If Google's servers are unavailable temporarily, your email might not have been sent correctly.

2. OLD VERSION OF APP

Have you checked your Gmail app to see if there are any updates? You should check your Gmail app for updates. Sometimes older apps can cause many problems. For the latest version, make sure to check your Google Play store.

3. WRONG RECIPIENT

Always verify the email address of the recipient before you send an email. The email will be returned to the sender if it is not correct. It is easy to make a small mistake writing the recipient down, so always check twice. It is also easy to make a mistake with the TLD, the part after the coma. If the recipients mail address ends with .net but you wrote .com then of course the mail won't be sent to him.

4. INTERNET CONNECTION

Problems with your internet connection could be to blame for Gmail not sending emails. Gmail will take longer for emails to be sent if the internet connection is slow. Examine your internet connection to determine if you have an issue there.

5. UPDATE YOUR BROWSER

Gmail can be used with any browser, such as Firefox, Safari, or Google Chrome. But you should make sure you check for the latest updates. Your browser being outdated can be the culprit.

6. CLEAR BROWSING CACHE

Clearing the Browsing Data cache data is a good idea for any browser. It is possible for the browsing cache data to accumulate over time and cause errors.

Clear cache in Google Chrome: Open Google-Chrome and click on the 3 dots in the top right corner. Click "Settings". Proceed to "Privacy & Security". Click "Clear Browsing-data" then click "Clear data".

Clear cache in Mozilla Firefox: Open Firefox and click the 3 lines at the bottom (right corner). Click "Settings". Proceed to "Privacy & Settings". Go down and Click "Delete browsing-data". One more time click "Delete". Click on "delete site data and cookies when Firefox is closed" to clear your cache data. You can select the box to the right to have your cache data cleared manually.

7. CHECK POP and IMAP SETTINGS

SSL is required for all connections to the IMAP server at imap.gmail.com with port 993 and the pop.gmail.com with port 995 POP servers. TLS is required for smtp.gmail.com, the outgoing SMTP server, use port 465 or port 587.

8. MAIl TOO LARGE?

You can only send 20MB of files per email if you are trying to send multiple images. Gmail doesn’t compress images. This is good for image quality, but can lead to overflowing the limit if too many images are being sent. It's best to use Gmail zip files instead, as compressed files take up less space.

9. CLEAR STORAGE

To send emails, Gmail needs a certain amount of space on your phone. Make sure your phone has enough space. Clearing space can be done by clearing drafts, clearing browsing data, optimizing photos and videos and deleting old files.

10. ASK GOOGLE

If the problem is still there, please contact Google Help. Note that the correct URL for Google Help is the one I just gave you. Beware of searching in Google for "Google helpline" or anything similar and not to end up on a scammersite of callcenters in India that will try to steal your money.
