I don't know if anyone has experienced any problems with GMail as of late but I have more problems than a little bit with them right now. I'm hoping that if someone else has had these problems, that they can tell me how to fix it. I also hope that maybe someone at Gmail sees this, and will help me out.
I get ALOT of emails every day. I USED TO get more than I get now. I've used Gmail for about 2 years and I have been very happy with this free email service. Until now.
A couple of months ago I discovered that emails that I had previously deleted kept returning to my Trash folder. I'm talking THOUSANDS of emails. Since I get pitches for my blogs, personal emails, and a wide variety of other emails, I'm concerned that my incoming emails won't be delivered because of this problem. Even though my inbox says I'm using less than 8% of the storage allotted to me, I have seen it before that emails came late when I had a lot of emails in my inbox (usually more than 800). I posted about this on a Gmail help forum and didn't really get any resolution.
Then I decided to import my Gmail into Outlook, and it took me three days to import approximately 18 thousand emails (from 2 years of use!) into Outlook. Outlook seemed to work fine, until I realized that many feeds for blogs that I subscribe to weren't being delivered. I don't know why, but that's what is happening. I went to Feedblitz to try to see if those feeds were being rejected - apparently they're still coming to me. I can't figure out how to analyze my Feedburner incoming feeds so I can't check those.
I switched back to using Gmail on the web about a week ago, hoping that would solve the problem. It hasn't.
I still have to check my trash daily and there's always 1400 or so emails in there. I get about 200-300 emails a day (when I get my feeds) so I know that these emails have been deleted before. I don't get 1400 emails a day so I don't know what's going on.
Does anyone out there have any tips?
