Default Gmail App no longer sending emails

So I shot some video that I wanted to send to a friend on my phone. The file was UNDER the 25 mb limit for gmail (around 24.5). I created a new email and sent it to myself as I wanted to see if it would go through. When I sent the email it just sat there syncing for a good 30-40 minutes and hung in my outbox. Eventually I just deleted it out of my outbox within the gmail app but now I can' send ANY emails. Just sits there still and keeps syncing. I tried turning auto-sync off and on within the settings, force closed gmail app, rebooted the phone, and clearing the cache. Still nothing. As of right now I have a test message with no attachments just sitting in my outbox...meanwhile my iPad sent the video through just fine. Gotta love Android....

I've gone to gmail.com on my computer and there is no "outbox". Just sent mail of which the email isn't in (probably because it was never sent). Unless Im missin something I don't see it. I looked under the "more" options on the left sidebar and just see chats, all mail, and trash...only place I've seen an outbox is in the gmail app on my phone and I removed it out of there.

no need to bash android. sounds like a local issue/quirk.. ;p)

force close gmail.

if you can open up the email, see if you can move it to draft folder or some other folder thats SYNCED on your desktop.

Force closing was one of the first things I tried as I stated in my first post. I had to uninstall the gmail updates and re-install them for gmail to re-sync properly. Also wasn't bashing, just stating a fact...and it's not a local issue/quirk. Shouldn't have to use work-arounds in order to send a simple file attachment that adheres to what Google allows. Apparently large file attachments sent through the gmail app get stuck quite a bit from what I've read. Try sending yourself something 20+mb through it and see what happens...

dont want to derail this discussion from the main focus, but i will say i dont have any issue sending large files as long as they are under the gmail file size limit, so i dont have the issues you are talking about today.

nowadays i use cloud storage services to send files.

in your accounts and sync tab, verify if there are any error messages/sync error messages.
go to yoru google dashboard:

https://www.google.com/dashboard‎

if you are using chrome sync, clear the data there and resync.

verify you are on a reliable data connection with no data restrictions (i am sure you are good here, just wanted to mention)

i ASSume you are not rooted?

what carrier?

worst case, you can factory reset and/or remove the gmail account and re-set up.

looking for software gremlins over the internet is difficult to diagnose.
