    I've had my MacBookPro for about 3 months, and it's been working great, especially with Gmail set up for IMAP.

    However, a month ago, while on vacation and connecting to a different wifi network, I started having problems sending from my Apple Mail Gmail imap account, if there were attachments.

    I have now reconfigured from SMTP for outgoing to IMAP, but I still have the same problem.

    Interestingly, the emails are actually going out fine, with the attachments: they just seem to get stuck in the Apple Mail application SENT.

    I would imagine that this is a fairly common combination: sending photo attachments with a Snow Leopard MBP using IMAP Gmail with Apple Mail. But I'm not finding many others with this problem.

    Any suggestions?

    You're not alone. For the past few weeks my Mail.app (on IMAP with Gmail also) sometimes doesn't delete a sent email or draft even when it's sent. It never used to have that problem for me in the past. I've yet to come up with a solution.
