    So, since I upgraded to Snow Leopard (might only actually be since 10.6.1) my Gmail account set up as IMAP in keeps going offline with the following error message:

    I am way under the Gmail quota. Has this happened to anyone else?

    I was having the same issue from and from my iphone. I had to check an old email while away from my home wireless and it pulled all the recent emails in. SOMEwhere in this whole thing, it has to be connected to a wireless issue. Maybe the 10.6.1 update?

    I'm having the same issues. I'm running Leopard and none of my SMTP connections have been working since Sunday morning. I can't figure it out for the life of me. It's affecting my Gmail, AOL, and my University e-mail.

    Nevermind. Connection is back down on my phone as well. I also can't upload to flickr anymore either and it seems to be the same type of connection issue and started around the same time. Looks to be an Apple issue rather than google since Flickr is a yahoo service. :confused:

    I still have not heard anything from gmail but I did try and experiment that fixed my phone issue. I quit and the phone problems went away so what this tells me is that is doing something that is crushing gmail. I dont know what is going on but at least I can manage my mail from my phone again.

    My problem is not exactly the same though the result is that basically the thing gets frozen when i try to use the gmail chat. Then a little 'Still working' message on the top appears and after that a box which says 'Unable to reach Gmail. Please check your internet connection. Trying to reconnect now…' . Other times, another box says something like 'Some gmail features will not be displayed due to internet issues, so we recommend you to try older versions or the html version'

    The sad thing is that all pc's in my home work with gmail without any problem.
