View Full Version : Is this a first? Problem with Gmail

01-09-2004, 08:35 PM
I have been emailed an attachment and have clicked on the link to save to folder. The download gets about half way through then comes up with the following error.

Internet Explorer cannot download <filenamelistedhere> from gmail.google.com.

The server returned an invalid or unrecognised response

Any idea what this means or what I can do to retrieve the attachment?

Try forwarding the email to an ISP email address.

Yes I had the same problem months ago when I first got Gmail. I contacted the Gmail techs and they emailed me saying they were working on it. I got one more email saying something non-commital and then nothing since. Remember it is still beta and they are saying not to do any mission critical work with Gmail.
