Help! My Gmail has stopped working in Apple Mail!

From today’s mail bag:

No gmail is coming in on Mac Mail, it just keeps turning and turning. I’ve googled and googled, but today I am on a deadline and can’t work on it. If you have ideas short of emptying out all my mail, please let me know.

Here’s a little trick in Mail that you can try to fix the Gmail problem:

1. Check to see if there any messages stuck in the Outbox. If there are, MOVE them to the Drafts folder.
2. Close out Mail.
3. Reopen Mail.
4. Open the Drafts folder and resend your previously unsent messages, one-by-one.
