    I've got a rather mysterious problem. My e-mail keeps clogging up when
    I try to send attachments. I've tried to do it from various accounts
    but the same thing occurs. I've called my Internet provider and they
    say the problem is not related to their server or my modem. That
    leaves the computer itself. Where do I start to look? Is there
    software that might diagnose the cause?

    all tips and hints appreciated.


    Safari 3.1
    Mac Powerbook G4
    OS X 10.4.11.

    Check the size of the attachments.

    Make pics 800 X 600 pixels max, 72 dpi resolution.

    1) When I use gmail it first says "sending e-mail", the "still
    working". 2) The "still working"-message don't go away.

    This problem is somewhat easy to overcome I am thinking

    First delete ALL mail attachments that you are not saving to your
    documents folder.
    Secondly, archive your important mailboxes.
    Thenuse the reset button in MAIL.
    Reboot and enjoy.

    If you do not how to archive and reset Mail; go to the HELP menu at
    the top of the display while in MAIL.

  7. Svante,

    I have exactly the same problem as you describe. Last week i could
    send any attachment, now gail says 'still working' and stays that way,
    even with very small file or pics.

    Does anyone have any solutions?
