(1) I use Gmail in the browser, on a phone with Android 2.3.5.
Sometimes when I select Inbox or Sent Mail, it will display "Inbox" or "Sent Mail" at the top, and then a search box and a Cancel button (and no list of emails). But it is supposed to list the inbox emails or sent emails. It doesn't happen every time.

The above does NOT happen with the Gmail app or with Gmail on a computer.

(2) This is for Gmail in the Android browser or the Gmail app.
When I see a list of Sent Emails, most emails are listed as "me" and not the person I sent it to!
In other words, it lists the subject line and date and "me" for each sent email.

If I open an email, the recipient is listed okay. The problem is with the list.

I had same issue a month ago, my emails with attachments where getting stuck trying to send but never made it therefore it killed my battery for two days and drove my data minutes over my limit and I rarely use a quarter of them in a month.

I talked to my service provider and they informed me it is because of that dated version of android,
You will need to backup your contacts & pictures and upgrade the phone to Android 4.04
It fixed the issue and I love this version of gmail.
It catergorizes by putting first letter in hightlighted icon of the first letter and
groups similar email together.
