    Go into Market and search Gmail app. Once you find it there will be two options; open & uninstall.

    I could only uninstall updates, not the entire app. The problem still exists. How do I get rid of the entire app?

    That's VZW for ya. If you are rooted use TB and delete the app. Make sure you back up your data first. This approach can be sketchy. Or you can remove the Gmail account thru the MyAccounts app then add your Gmail back in. Gmail bugs are hard to fix. If this doesn't do it maybe a factory reset might be in order.

    I deleted the account in settings, but that only delelted the EMail app (and account.) The GMail app is still there in all it's glory. I can't find a way to delete that. ???

    I also notice that when I go to Manage Apps - Permissions.....where it says the application can access each of: Personal information, Network Communication, Your accounts, Storage and System Tools...there are exclamation points (inside orange triangles) next to each of them. Have they always been there?

    Go into Settings, about phone (all the way at the bottom), system version. That first set of numbers probably 5.9.902.XT875.Verizon.en.US, is what will show up. But the 5.9.902 is what they're interested in

    TO ALL THE KIND PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN HELPING ME WITH THIS ISSUE: i may have solved it. I had changed the security in GMail settings on the computer from http to https recently when Google noticed a suspicious (from Vietnam) IP address in the activity. I just changed it back to http and Voila! I was able to send a couple of messages from the phone! HOWEVER, I'm still puzzled by the fact that I got Send error messages BEFORE I went to https. But to all that have worked to help me THANK YOU 100 times over!!! If you can figure out the timing of the resolution, I'd love to know it, but perhaps I should be satisfied with what I've got. :)
