    I have an Imac and I have my 3 gmail accounts loaded onto my Imac mail application. It has always worked fine since I got the computer.

    Now, yesterday i noticed that one of my accounts is not loading up at all. It is stuck on the cirlce loading and wont load anything. It seems like the other 2 are working. I sent out an email before this that had 86 photos in the email. Could the size of this email be the problem? I noticed a folder on my mail sidebar that I never saw before yesterday. It was called, "Recovered on my mac". I looked in there and for some reason, it had about 8 copies of the email with the 86 photos I sent. I tried to delete the emails, I even deleted the folder, but 15 minutes later, they just reappear.

    I deleted the email from my sent items, deleted it everywhere on the computer, but still one of my gmail accounts won't load. Could anyone who has experienced this lend a helping hand? Thanks.

    It's almost certainly because of that 86-picture e-mail you sent out. Mail does not like large attachments.

    Compress Files

    You can try compressing your image files and then attaching them to your composed mail you are sending. Two applications you can use are DropStuffit. The other app you can use to compress your image files is your Mac OS. It has a 'compress' feature which comes with your Mac OS. Depending on which OS you are using, under the file menu is a 'compress' or 'Create Archive' option. Choose the files/folder you want to compress, and them select the appropriate option under the file menu. This will compress your images files to a .zip file, that reduces the Mb size of your images for faster transmissions over the internet.
