    So about a week ago, apple mail stopped sending emails from my gmail account. I figured it would work eventually so i just looked into gmail when i had to send. cause I still received gmail in apple mail.

    just now i decided to remove and put gmail back in. When i did this, my gmail inbox still had all the emails. when i turned apple mail off and back on, my inbox was empty!! yes they're still in the gmail page, but i want them back in apple mail!

    and no my outbox still isn't working.

    actually wait, isn't apple mail supposed to automatically load all my emails when i put a new email in? dang it. what the heck!?

    Help? i tried clicking "rebuild" but that isn't doing anything. :(

    IMAP or POP?

    If it's IMAP, then I'd just delete the account and set it up again. Because it's quick and simple.
