    Normally this error comes when you are sending any mail having some attachment.Sometimes when you send an attachment to somebody by Gmail, it will occur an error named 008, this is caused by the size of your attachment, it must be not larger than 25MB, now I will tell you about how to fix Gmail Error 008.

    On the Yahoo Mail sign-in page, click the "I can't access my account" link.

    It sounds like the internet browser you are using saved his login information. Go to Gmail and when you are inside his account you can log off by going to the top right of Gmail and clicking the profile name. You should get a drop down box. Select "sign out". Once it signs out of his account you should be back at the login screen. You can now enter your login information.

    Please comment back if you have any questions.

    First try going opening your browser of choice and going to mail.google.com. Ideally the page should load and you should be able to log in there. If your page times out (you get an error instead of the login page) then it's possible that some program on your computer is blocking the connections, or that your router is blocking the connections. Try ending any programs you're not using (including any that might be hiding in the icon tray) one at a time until you can get access to gmail again. If you can't find any that are blocking it, it might be a setting on your router.
    Any additional information you can provide would be helpful.

    Install an ad blocker like: Adblock, Adblock Plus, uBlock, uBlock Origins are the most popular ones.
    Adblock Plus
    uBlock Origin
    Depending on how much RAM you have depends on which version to install. Four gigs or less only install uBlock, or uBlock Origins as they are smaller and won't slow down your system. AdBlock is the smaller version of AdBlock Plus so not as small as uBlock or uBlock Origins. AdBlock Plus not only handles ads, it handles some malware and pop-ups as well. Requires a device with more than 4 Gb of Ram.
