We live in an age where most communication is either based on emails, live messengers, video calls, and audio calls. However, among the 4 mentioned, emails are the most commonly used.

There are plenty of email clients out there, and some developers have even implemented them as web services so that you don’t have to install anything on your PC anymore.

One good example is Google’s very own Gmail service, as it has become one of the most reliable email clients in the world.

Of course, this service is not without its flaws. For example, due to circumstances that have yet to be determined, you may get the occasional error message when trying to send an email.

For example, users have been reporting that they are getting an error message that says:

Oops… a server error occurred and your email was not sent. (#007)

Fortunately enough, there are solutions to this issue, and we have listed them in this step-by-step guide so that you can enjoy using Gmail without any further interferences.
