Once upon a time, Gmail was available by invitation only. When it was first introduced to the general public, users were allowed to invite only a limited number of people to open accounts. Google kept this free email service’s elite reputation for several years. However, the tech company officially ended the limited invitation system in 2007. Since then, Gmail’s popularity has grown exponentially. Today, many users find it indispensable.

That said, Gmail is far from flawless. Like other email services, it can encounter various issues. For instance, many users reported that they were unable to send the email they had written. They would only see the ‘Delivery Incomplete’ error message. Some users reported that they received a message which said, “There was a temporary problem delivering your message.”

Users who encountered this issue were naturally concerned. After all, there were cases wherein the error message illustrated that there was a problem in processing the account credentials. If you’re experiencing the same issue, do not panic. In this post, we will teach you how to get rid of the Gmail ‘Delivery Incomplete’ error message. We will share several troubleshooting tips that will help you resolve the problem. By the end of this article, you will be able to go back to sending your emails with ease.

Method 1: Checking the Credentials

If it is crucial for you to be able to send the message successfully, you need to know how to fix the ‘Delivery Incomplete’ Gmail error message. One of the reasons this problem occurs is because users try to send messages to their own account. So, you should look at the recipient credentials to know if you’ve included your own email. If so, try using a different Gmail account to be able to send the messages to yourself. You should also know the recipient has blocked your account for spam, you won’t be able to deliver the messages successfully.

According to some users, a bug could have caused the error. It is possible that after several exchanges, it replaced your recipient’s credentials. If you encounter the error message in the middle of a long exchange of emails, you should check if the recipient’s credentials have been changed. As a safety precaution, we also recommend that you use

Method 2: Limiting the Number of Recipients

Sending batch messages to several recipients can also cause the error to appear. It is possible that the server is recognizing your messages as spam emails. Consequently, it is preventing you from delivering them. You will know that this is the case if you see an error message which says, “Recipient server did not accept our requests.” This message indicates that the recipient’s server recognizes your mail as spam. So, if you want to avoid this problem, we suggest that you limit the number of recipients in a batch message.

Method 3: Checking if You Have Enough External Email Storage Space

If you get the ‘Space Shortage’ error message, then you must check your external email storage space. Are you redirecting emails from an external account? Well, if this is the case, then you must ensure that you have enough storage space. Free up some space, and you will be able to send emails without any issue.

Method 4: Getting Rid of Suspicious Links and Attachments

When you are sending a batch of messages to various recipients, you must check if there are suspicious links and attachments in your e-mail. Otherwise, you will likely receive an error message which says, “Recipient server did not accept our requests.” It is possible that the recipient server is recognizing your messages as spam emails. So, we recommend that you go over your emails and remove the attachments and links. Once you’ve done that, try to send the messages again. You should be able to deliver them successfully without dealing with the ‘Delivery Incomplete’ error.
