No I think we’rre Finished here I’ll find another solution. In the meantime I will be putting a denial on my credit card for your charges.

Now all my messages have disappeared what did you do to my computer!?

Were you able to re-add your gmail account in Mail > Preferences > Accounts?

Is it still receiving new email messages?

Ask Your Own Email Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I did and no I am not getting new emails nor can I send them and everything in my mail sysrem is now gone!
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
We are done

Don't worry, all your email messages should be at the gmail.com website.

Can you please shut down / restart the computer and check?

Ask Your Own Email Question

Also, if there is still any issue, I recommend the better email application called Mozilla Thunderbird, which you can download / install at the website below:

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/

- After installing it, then open the Thunderbird application, then select the option to use existing email account, then enter your gmail email account information and next / continue.

- Then click on Inbox on the left and check.

Please let me know if there is still any issue later on. Thank you for your patience.

Why did you charge my credit card $57.00? You never solved my problem and in fact made it worse.

We guarantee our service, so don't worry. I will continue to help you.

1. Do you still see all your email messages at the gmail.com website?

2. Are you still able to receive / send emails at the gmail.com website?

3. Click on the website below:

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/

, there, download / install the Thunderbird software.

- After installing it, then open the Thunderbird application, then select the option to use existing email account, then enter your gmail email account information and next / continue.

- Then click on Inbox on the left in Thunderbird, and check.

- Please use the Thunderbird application and see if emails work fine and better.

Please let me know if there is still any issue. Thank you.
