Okay, folks, I'll go ahead and try to crowdsource this, since I'm not finding answers any other way.

As anyone who's gotten emails from me recently knows, Gmail has decided to double-send every email I send. Actually, it both double-sends it (so you'll get two copies), and gives me an error message saying it couldn't be sent (thus leaving both two sent copies and a draft in my mailbox). The actual error message reads: "Oops... a server error occurred and your email was not sent. (#78282)"

In an ironic twist, Google is useless for finding what that error means.

This happens on every web browser version of gmail on every computer, including Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and even IE on a Windows laptop I used at Arisia. It does not happen on the gmail app for my iPad or my Windows Phone or on Thunderbird (but dammit, I like using the gmail interface).

Other data: The only Lab I have active is the Calendar widget. No apps authorized other than the ones like the iPad app that need it. Changing themes does nothing. None of the options I found searching (most of which involve browser cache) work, not surprisingly (since it's obviously not my browser).

Oh, and my work gmail is configured exactly the same way as my personal one, and it doesn't have any problems even on the same browsers.

Anyone have any thoughts/experience with this?

The limited data I have are not useful. I've reached out to some gurus to see if they know anything or maybe know someone who's still at gmail.

OK first round of meaningful questions has come back:

1. Do you have any outbound filters active?

2. Do you have Gmail Offline installed anywhere?

3. Are you using Gmail's SMTP server or connecting/proxying through a third party?

Second useful comment - clear your caches anyway. Google is known to transport cookies between devices in order to maintain a more uniform state. If there's a bad value somewhere it's possible Google is moving the bad value around and causing what appears to be a cross-browser problem.

Did you ever figure out what was causing the issue? Or at least get it solved without knowing why?
