“Oops… the system was unable to perform your operation (error code 007).
Please try again in a few seconds”

That is how Gmail greeted me this morning when I tried to open one of my labels/folder/whateveritiscalled.

Gmail spreads labels over clusters?

Update: The label holds all my emails forwarded and filtered from another Gmail account. The ‘sent items’ folder in that account does also throws up the same error. Which makes me wonder.. hmm..

  1. When I was trying to send a word file to other Gmail Account…. It reported the same ERROR msg. “Oops… the system was unable to perform your operation (error code 007).
    Please try again in a few seconds”….

    NOTE : the size of the file was 34 MB

  2. Well,

    It seems, the same error occurs a lot, because it happened to me today from the moment I logged into my account. I tried it for several times.Log in,log out,….

    Didn`t work, still the same error.

    Guess, they have just some technical problems and that`s their general answer for everything.But it`s still annoying.

  13. I am facing exactly the same problem. I cannot send .zip files nor .exe files. Does any body knows the solution?

    I thought gmail was the best

    Thank you

  14. you should take the .exe out of it. So rename your files, WITHOUt .exe behind it. Most pc’s already have the extentions invisible, but with a few settings you can tell Windowns (or whatever) to show the extenstions in the name. Delete the .exe or the .pfd extention and its ready to send. After you send it, tell the person who wants it to put .exe or .pdf behind it, and it’ll work just fine..

  15. I guess the problem is with the size of th files. I was sending three pics (about 1 MB overall) and it gave the same error. i saved the pics one by one and it worked.

  16. The same for me.. I tried sending a 424 kbs word file and it didn’t work but I tried with another file,, a gif with 24 kb an it work,,, so I suppose that my connection speed is not working well I mean, it would be a good idea to check with our providers and see if the upload rate decreased misteriously.

  17. This error is not limited to gmail. I have a yahoo account too and I cannot send attached files right now. The error message does not come up but during attaching, the status bar states “Done” and the screen just shows the moving status bar that never stops.


    September 24, 2006 at 10:06 pm

  18. I received the following reply from Google tech support on this issue. Google only allows attachments up to 10 MB.

    Thanks for your report.

    Gmail allows users to send and receive messages up to 10MB in size. This limit applies to email messages as a whole, including any necessary transport encodings.

    We apologize for any confusion this may have caused, and we thank you for your understanding.

  19. Hey Even i had this problem….
    so the sloution is ..
    1) clear the cookies and temp internet files…
    2) then excess gmail using secured server….
    now most prob u ll directly reach your inbox.
    if not then login
    3) Now log off from your account…

    After this it ll work fine…

    Have a cool gmail surfing

  20. When I send an exe file inside a zip archive, gmail complains that it won’t send exe for security reasons. But when I use strong encryption so that file names and content are not visible, I get the error code 007. I tried to send a zip file without encryption or exe and it worked.


    October 1, 2006 at 6:23 am

  21. And by the way both the files are under 50k and my connection speed is 256 Kbps.

  22. When I was trying to send a word file to other Gmail Account…. It reported the same ERROR msg. “Oops… the system was unable to perform your operation (error code 007).Please try again in a few seconds”….

    If anybody know solution for this error, please send to me…

  23. Hi!
    I had same problem. And i think I have come to some conclusions.
    The problem was, I had 100+ emails in my “INBOX”. and hence it had some problme showing me the inbox.
    What i did is a small tweak,
    I searched the mail in inbox & put it in another lable & archieved it. So my inbox was cleared.
    Then i opened my inbox and alas…its opened.
    Try this out if possible.

  24. same fukn prob. small file. went to Yahoo and sent just fine. Is Google going to wake the fuk up?


    October 6, 2006 at 4:19 pm

  25. Getting same problem but with 250-300k word/excel files. But only on some machines (two different firewalls)


    October 17, 2006 at 8:30 pm

  26. I get the 007 error all the time, every day. It has nothing to do with attachments for me. However, even though I click away from the message and agree to discard it, the email is always sent anyway.


    October 19, 2006 at 12:48 pm

  27. Hi, I had a similar problem. I couldnt login my account and appear the same error as you.
    I thing that in my case the problem was some caching or corrupt information.

    For some help, navegate in where:
    Its where I thing I solved my problem:-)

    Good Luck

  28. Best be watching what you’re sending and recieving then I reckon.


    December 3, 2006 at 9:42 pm

  29. OK, to solve this problem:
    “Oops… the system was unable to perform your operation (error code 007).Please try again in a few seconds”
    You must to get in with “”.
    Dont forget HTTPS. Is a security sistem of gmail.

  30. Hi, I’m not trying to send anything though, as soon as I log in, it brings up like 15 of those OOPS messages with error code 007… it’s happening everytime I log in now.. sending and receiving emails are fine though but it’s just annoying me now and I wanna get rid of it! If any of you know how to solve it please lemme know, :)


    December 11, 2006 at 6:26 pm

  31. Oops… the system was unable to perform your operation (error code 007)…I am also having this same problem, as so many people are. I never experienced this until I downloaded Internet explorer 7. It was perfect until then..Any comments


    December 13, 2006 at 12:26 pm

  32. I cannot find any “offical” help site for GMail, only blogs by users. Is there one. The 007 error appears to be a GMail technical problem, not related to file size, cookies, etc.

  33. Same problem here. Clearing the cache as suggested and using the site seemed to be the solution (no problems again, so far…).

  34. i have two gmail accounts i am trying to logon one but everytime it gives me that error,but when i use gmail account number 2 it works just fine what kind of BS is that one works but the other gets the error,don’t tell me it’s a firewall cause i can access one of them,all day i’ve been trying but same damn thing.


    April 12, 2007 at 9:50 pm

  35. I’ve been trying to send a mail for the last 2 days … n this is what i found out … GMail wont send the damn thing if the word “Bank” is contained anywhere in the message!!! Remove bank and there is no 007 msg and the mail is sent smoothly .. STOOPID PIECE OF SH** !


    July 4, 2007 at 7:02 am

  36. i had login problem, the moment i enter the id and password a new page would occur and then the error. so i tried the web address as ‘’ it works man
    go ahead.

  37. are you guys using vista? I am experiencing this 007 troube since a couple of weeks on my notebook (satellite pro toshiba -vista as default) both with and without attach. without, it works sometimes and then no way again, for hours. Right at my back I got the notebook of my wife (compaq dunno what, 2+years old, XP professional) which works, never failed a single mail. Am actually shifting computer all the time, endangering my family relation.

    in some other blog I found this “go to draft, mark the ms you can’t send and open it, at this point it works”. which I tried, uselessly.


    February 19, 2008 at 12:05 am

  38. me again. sorry I tried the solution 1 post before me (dashex) after sending.
    does work … so far!
    thanx dashex!


    February 19, 2008 at 1:24 am

  39. I’m facing this problem when I try to delete a file
