Hello,

My mac mail keeps coming up and giving me dozens of popups. I believe they're from
Google calendar alarms

Screenshot attached.

Open the Preferences in Apple Mail
Go to the ACCOUNTS section
Select the GMAIL account in the left column
In the right side under Account Information check that the Outgoing Mail Server has a valid SMTP server in the drop-down so that the GMail account can send replies.

I looked at the outgoing mail server and it says smtp.gmail.com:weikelbob(at)gmail.com

That look correct. Could I not have my password set correctly?

I tried deleting and restarting, but I got the same popups.

Correction, I let them all come up. There's over 4000 popups.

Is there any way to delete the mail program and reinstall it so that I can get to the preferences?

Don't delete Apple Mail as it is part of the core Operating system and hard to install separately

Quit Apple Mail and before you re-open it you should plug out your network cable or disable wifi so you've no Internet connection.
When you open apple mail you should be able to work without the annoying alerts.
In preferences you should edit the smtp servers and re-enter the password for gmail
Also you may be able to delete emails in the outbox.
Now you can re-enable the Internet connection and see if it works.

If errors reappear repeat as above and choose a different smtp server for the gmail account
