I cannot get incoming email on my gmail

Technician's Assistant: How's your internet connection? Are you checking Gmail from a browser or a mail client (e.g. Outlook)?

From browser

Technician's Assistant: Are there any antivirus or firewall settings that could block you from receiving mail?

I don't think so. I have no problem with my out going email.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Email Expert to know before I connect you?

The incoming email failed occasionally.

Hi, welcome and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I am glad to assist you today.
I am very sorry about your issues. Few things first:

  1. Are you using a Windows computer or a Mac?
  2. Are you using a web browser like Internet Explorer, Edge, Chrome or Safari to access www.gmail.com to send and receive emails?
  3. Or are you using an email program like MS Outlook 2010?

Please let me know by replying to me here so that I can help you further.
