Explain your issue in full detail here:

Have had several people tell me they are sending me emails over and over again and not getting through. Was trying to get my wedding musician to send over his song ideas and for 3 days went back and forth trying to figure out why emails are not arriving in my gmail - and they still are not. However, when he sends the email without any attachments it works fine. Some how gmail appears to be censoring certain attachments.
This was the case as well earlier when I was attempting to send some copies of excel spreadsheets and CSV files to my email, as well as JPG images. The odd thing is some emails are still coming in with attachments after trying to send about 6 or 7 times. Do not have headers, because the emails don't bounce - they just show like they got sent but never arrive.

Not only impacts the phone - but sending from numerous computers I have duplicated this issue.
