Gmail Outage

Google Tuesday apologised for an outage that struck possibly millions of users of its email system, Gmail, earlier in the day.

From Official Google Blog:

“‘If you’ve tried to access your Gmail account today, you are probably aware by now that we’re having some problems. Shortly after 10 9:30am GMT our monitoring systems alerted us that Gmail consumer and businesses accounts worldwide could not get access to their email.

We’re working very hard to solve the problem and we’re really sorry for the inconvenience. Those users in the US and UK who have enabled Gmail offline through Gmail Labs should be able to access their inbox, although they won’t be able to send or receive emails.”

Google did not say how many clients were affected by the incident, but reports of trouble flooded the internet from all over the world.
