    Try leaving it for a while, occasionally it sorts itself out. How's your 3G reception? It could be waiting for a better signal.

    Do you still have the low space notification at the top? The downloads won't start until that disappears. I find that 14mb is the cut off point so if you do have 15mb left you shouldn't be getting the low space warning.

    I had this problem. Just go to settings->applications->manage applications->google mail-> clear data

    Don't ask me why, but straight away all the downloads I had queued started straight away.

    I've had this same problem, and just tried this tip. Worked a treat.

    Thanks
