How to find the Message ID of a Gmail Message

Every message in Gmail has a message ID assigned to it. You can find the Gmail Message ID by logging into Gmail, clicking on an email message and then clicking the down arrow beside the “Reply” arrow and then select show original.

If you know the message ID, you can search for the message in Gmail by using the following search scheme: rfc822msgid:<XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX> . You may need to include the domain name during the search (rfc822msgid:<[email protected]>).

Gmail POP Error in Outlook ” Receiving Reported Error (0x800CCC90)”

I ran into a problem the other day with Outlook throwing the following error when trying to pull email messages from Gmail:

” Task “[email protected]” – Receiving reported error (0x800CCC90) : ‘Your incoming (POP3) e-mail server has reported an internal error. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP). The server responded: – ERR Unable to retrieve rfc822msgid:xxxxxxxxxxxxx.

More than likely the issue is that Outlook downloaded the message but Gmail says the message was not downloaded yet. This results in the error message referenced above. 

Here are the steps I used to resolve this issue. 

Step One: Log into Gmail on the web. 

Step Two: In the search box, in Gmail, search for the message referenced in your error message it should look similar to this: rfc822msgid:<31799347-9C90-4BBB-917D-CF95CCC21451>. Make sure to type the message ID exactly how it is referenced in the error message. Depending on the message ID you may need to add @domain after it like this: rfc822msgid:<[email protected]>  .

If you typed everything correctly, you should find the offending email message. You can double check to make sure the email message ID matching the message ID of the error you are receiving in Outlook.

Step Three: Delete the offending email message from Gmail.

Step Four: Go back to Outlook and do a Send/Receive. The error message should disappear. If the error message does not disappear you can check out this older post about this issue or perhaps their are multiple messages that need cleared from Gmail. 

I hope this helps. Sound off in the comment section if it helped or if you have additional questions.

How to Enable “Undo Send” for your Gmail Account

Recently, Gmail rolled out a cool little feature called “undo send”. Basically this feature allows a user to “call back” a sent email. “Undo Send” doesn’t actually pull the email from the recipient’s mailbox; but instead puts a small time limit on the email before it is sent from your account. This allows you to undo a “sent” email for up to 30 seconds.

This is very useful if you accidentally forgot to attach a document or having the wrong recipient for the email. I would recommend enabling this feature. It may save you some embarrassment down the road.

Here is how to enable “Undo Send” for your Gmail account.

Step One: Log into your Gmail account.

Step Two: Click the gear in the right hand corner and go down to Settings.Gmail Settings

Step Three: Once Settings is opened click the General tab and you will see an Undo Send Option. Continue reading
