Art Shotwell. Same problem. I can go all day with no mail coming into my Mac's Mailbox from Google, then, when I send an outgoing message, the screen flashes and my outgoing message goes, and suddenly the day's incoming comes into my Mac Mail inbox. Google has really messed up. Jeremy Paine. Exactly the same ever since mojave update I'm getting tired of this problem. The only fix seems to be to move away from using gmail. My wife has been much more frustrated than I have been. I've worked in software for years, now retired, but she is a plain jane user.

I'd love to hear anybody's solutions. Depending on which email address, I had to try different means to get them online again including deleting the passwords, exiting Mail and re-entering the passwords again even though there is no change in the password. Sometimes it works; at other times it doesn't.

For gmail application-specific passwords, I had to revoke them by loggin to webmail and re-create them; usually it worked. Sometimes, I have to wait it out and after a while hours or even days the issue seems to resolve by itself. There is no problem with my iPhone and iPad. Apple shoudl do something about its software Mail.
