I sent some photos from my phone gallery to myself via email but they didn't arrive. Why not?

My gmail account was compromised several days ago. I changed my password but now I'm not receiving images sent as emails to myself from my phone. Are the pictures going somewhere other than to my gmail?

Are you sending them through MMS? Why not just transfer them with an USB cable?

Because the computer doesn't recognise the USB cable. I've tried six ways to Sunday and, believe me, it's VERY frustrating!

What phone do you have?

Most likely the pictures aren't going anywhere so don't worry. They won't be going in someone others hands.

It's not that I'm worried about them going to someone else, necessarily, but I want to print a particular photo for an art project. I have an LG Nexus 4

I have a Nexus 4 as well and have issues connecting to my laptop. But when it comes to your Gmail, did you change the password on the computer? If so, you will need to update that information in your phone, as well your pictures may have gone into the junk folder so that could very well be your issue but who knows.
