    Problems with GMail app and stuck sending "large" files/attachments

    My GMail app seems to get stuck sending files. For example, yesterday I tried to email myself a photo that was 1MB in size. I was on WiFi (my home router, which I have a good connection and can quickly browse the internet with ease) with a full signal (sitting right next to the router).

    I attached the photo and composed the email. I hit send. It was listed in my box with the red "sending" for over an hour without sending.

    So I logged into my regular "email" app, and fired off the SAME EXACT file and email structure, and hit send. Less than 20 seconds later the file was sent AND received by my email account.

    So clearly this is an issue with the GMail app. Occasionally this happens and it actually sends the file, despite still showing in the outbox for days at a time, but you never know if it has been sent or not because it never shows up as sent in GMail. It just says "sending".

    More often than not, however, it never sends.

    This appears to be the issue, but the help file referenced gives me a page not found:

    Bump. Stuck again as we speak. What's the purpose of being able to "share" things when you can't send the file? I'm sitting here right next to the router, nothing.

    I just tried with a file that was only 120kb and it still didn't work, ridiculous.

    Yes this has been a problem for some for a long, long, time. I have the Samsung Charge since shortly after it came out and have never been able to send photo attachments using the gmail app. I just send as mms using Handcent instead. I have never figured out or found the fix. In fact I am not sure I have ever even seen a suggestion as to a fix. This makes me think it is only a problem for a select few of us. The typical reference to this issue I find is like this thread. Very old, a few people with the problem, and no suggestions as to a fix.
