I assume you have email on your 770, not on gmail server.Then you get
that mail and delete it on remote pop server? No more headers there.
I never used built in e-mail client, but it must store the letter some-
where. Find the directory and browse through it. If you changed options
on google server to let pop3, then you have options. From bigger box:
  openssl s_client -connect pop.gmail.com:995
Or from 770:
  socat - openssl:pop.gmail.com:995,verify=0
Then, from command line, talk to pop server (user, pass, list, top, quit).
Look at the size of the message.
Otherway, if the letter is on the 770, it could be too big for little dude.
Let the swap be with you, space worrior! Find those headers and check for
mime or friends. Or it has flash or other strange content, that client
just ignores.
