Potential Reasons Why Your Email Might Be Queued in Gmail
There are a few reasons why your message might be queued
- Your device might be having trouble connecting to the internet, and it's either waiting for connectivity to return or just taking a little while to send.
- You're sending a lot of messages at once and Gmail is sending them one at a time to avoid overloading the recipient's inbox. In this instance, emails can sometimes take a while to send.
- Your device is running low on space, if you're running low on space and trying to send attachments, you might find a message is queued until your device can free up some more space.
- You're sending a message to a large group of people and Gmail is sending it in batches.
If you're sending lots of emails or just want to power up your Gmail experience you might find a desktop app for Gmail useful.
