Why does Apple Mail keep loosing connection to the Gmail SMTP server? 0 Recommended Answers 167 Replies 386 Upvotes

I have always used the Apple Mail client on my Mac for several email accounts. Lately since upgrading to MacOS 10.14.4 Mojave, my Gmail account keeps going offline. I have isolated this to the outgoing SMTP server. Closing and restarting Mail fixes the problem but not permanently. Gmail goes offline usually within a few hours. I have tried deleting and recreating the Gmail account in Mail multiple times but so far I have not resolved the problem.
