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.

I'm having the exact same issue, as are several people I know. Just started happening with the latest update. Quit and restart solves it, but after a while it goes offline again.

I am having the exact issue, gmail in the Mac mail client kept on going offline. I have to constantly manually update it by quitting the app and reopening it.

Same for me. Ideleted the account and then reinstalled it.  Everything was fine until my Mac went sleep.  When I woke it up, Gmail was offline again.  Sure would like some help on this.

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.

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. How many other people have this issue???

I guess Google doesn't actually support their products. At least with a Google body, but hopes someone on the outside can help.

I've been having the same issue! Ever since I came back early August from traveling out of the country, it has been acting up and I haven't been able to figure it out. My emails seem to be coming in just fine, but going out has had quite a delay, although they have all gone out after several attempts. Has anyone found any solution yet or suggestions?
