    My phone has been trying to send an email from gmail for 2 days. it keeps saying unable to send and I don't know how to stop it. If I click on it, it takes me to the edit email account screen. When I go through the steps it says authentication failed even though my gmail account is fine. I don't know how to fix this. Also when I go to all programs I have 2 internet, 2 maps, and 2 navigator icons that weren't there before and won't delete.

    That is really strange.

    First and foremost, have you tried restarting the phone?

    If yes, then you may want try turning off sync for your gmail account.

    Settings > Accounts & Sync > Google and then just uncheck the box. This may stop it from trying to send. Then you can go to the gmail app and hit Menu > View labels to get to your outbox and delete it.


    I'm going to have to defer to someone else on the double Web, Maps and Navigator Icons. Are these in the apps list or the app drawer?

    I sometimes get double icons on those apps, mainly i get double call history icon. A simple restart fixes it.

    Here, read this because the solution might apply to you even if you're not rooted:

    You can clear Gmail's data, and then it will re-sync your Gmail account from scratch and recreate the auth key that it uses to authenticate your phone as the rightful owner.

    Glad to hear it. You'll want to turn sync back on for gmail, btw. Otherwise I don't believe you will get you email anymore.
