    Google has a site where you can check the status of their services. I don't have a link handy.

    Gmail usually arrives in 30 seconds to a minute for me. When they're having issues it can take 10 minutes, but that's rare.

    There we go. I just noticed that you can click the RSS link to see past status messages. Doesn't look like they're admitting to any outages in the past few days.

    that's how it used to be for me until a few days ago. I just tried to send a email from my droid and gave up after 5 minutes of "sending"

    settings all look fine, haven't changed them since I got the phone. I'm using 8% of my storage space according to the bottom of the Gmail (PC) page. The think that really bugs me is this is starting to be intermittent.

    So did you:

    phone settings > applications > manage applications > menu > filter > all > gmail storage > clear data

    ?

    No
    If I do that I get a message that states I will permanently loose all data "including files, settings accounts, databases and so on."..................... would that wipe out my GMail off the phone?

    Oh, wow, they need to change that dialog box. It DOES NOT delete accounts and settings. It will delete all gmail from your phone but it will sync up again with google's servers so you won't lose anything. One caveat: if you have anything stuck in your outbox that hasn't had a chance to sync with google's servers, those stuck messages will be deleted.

    I have no idea why that dialog box is so scary, but you'll have to trust me and delete "Gmail storage" data. I just did it myself on my droid with no problem.

    ps. is that what you really look like?

    OK I did it. Now I'll play with it and see what happens. It did sync back up.
