Hi @Elyse! :smiling-face:

 

Is this a Galaxy S7 you've got?

 

If so, do you know which Android version it's on? (Settings > About Device  > Software Info.) And have you tried clearing the data and cache from the Gmail app?

Yes it is a Galaxy S7, it is currently Android 8.0.0, and it will not let me clear the data, but i was able to clear the cache.

Did clearing the cache help you, @Elyse 

 

Is the Clear Data option greyed out?

Thanks for confirming.

 

Are you able to uninstall the app and install it again?

@Elyse : It's odd that the data option is greyed out. Assuming that you're unable to update to the latest version of the Gmail app, then you could try a data backup and factory reset and/or visiting your nearest Samsung Support centre for them to take a closer look at what's going on for you.
