Re: gmail sending out emails by itself with no content
I have been experiencing the same issue with my personal email account. Every so often I will receive a message that an email failed to send. There is a blank email message that is presented in my inbox, as if the message was sent to myself from my own account. I usually just delete the message. After experiencing the same behavior several times I decided to investigate further.
When this happens I notice at the top of my Droid Razr Maxx screen is a rounded triangle with an exclamation point in the center. I clicked the icon, which opens up an unsent email screen. Sure enough, there was a message in the sent inbox that has not been sent. When clicking on the message it states something to the effect of 'the message was not sent because it failed to synch with server'. There is an icon at the lower left hand side of the screen that looks like a letter with an arrow in it. I clicked this and another message pops up and says 'resending message'. I had to try a few times until the message finally was sent.
I'm surmising here but I think the code is written to self generate an email from your inbox to yourself to provide a clue that a message was not successfully sent. Furthermore, the same type of behavior has been experienced when I tried to send text files with attachments that never ended up leaving my outbox. Text messages kept being sent to myself until I dealt with the unsent text message.
Hope that sheds a bit of light into what's happening.
