      Last Issue Before I Wipe My Mac

      I have decided because of all the issues I am getting that it might be better to totally wipe my Mac clean.

      Only today yet another issue cropped up, now I am not sure if it's to do with my Mac or Gmail or poisoned server. I use 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 as my DNS server

      The issue was with my gmail account, I belong to a mailing site that sends out emails, you read them get credits and then you can use the credits to send out a mailing to other members

      Well today I received no less than 7 duplicate emails! The first one I clicked and got credited for the second told me I had already received credits for it.

      Now would I get 7 of the same email come through within a space of 20 minutes?
      Is the problem with Gmail, the server or my Mac?

      Probably a glitch with Gmail. With all the problems you have had I think you are doing the right thing starting with a clean slate.

      Hopefully a glitch at Gmail, I have informed the owner of the site what was happening.

      It took 7 hours to wipe my Mac and start again, so fingers crossed!
