OK, here's more info:

Users of Gmail from around the globe are reporting that the service isn't accessible. Google is promising a fix soon.

Thanks, TI. All I'm getting at that link is a blank white page. WebmasterWorld effect? ;)

No I think it is just overloaded.
I got it from Google news.

A very strange thing is happening.
I am signed into Google accounts & have iGoogle open.
When I click on the Gmail link at the top of the page it starts off by saying the normal...waiting for gmail...however it then shows that it is downloading information from a website called trading.....online.com I purposely left out the complete name. When I try to access this domain I only get a blank page probably from server overload.

Is it possible that Gmail is under attack by someone who changed their IP addresses? I'm not very up on these things so any input would be helpful.

Just went there and got right in. (I'm in California.)

I don't know, TI. I'm up on software development, not DNS issues. :)

On the bright side though, I'm seeing the same thing LiA is. Gmail seems to working fine again.

Sadly though, with Gmail, the above statement must be qualified with: working again for now.

Its not working here either. But G's other products (Search, Calendar, Reader, etc.) seem to not be having problems.

It's intermittent now. Sometimes it works, other times it's in Offline mode.

Working again for me (for now).

Just realized that I have passed 7 years with WebmasterWorld & now have 2500 posts.

Seems like yesterday I started posting on this great forum.

According to this report the outage was about an hour and a half:

Engineer error knocks out Gmail

I just received an e-mail from Google about the Gmail outage.

Basically they said that as a result of the outage they'll be extending a 3-day SLA credit to my account. And that the credit will be reflected in an automatic 3-day extension to my Google Apps term date. No action on my part is necessary.

The also appear to be taking the outage quite seriously. All kinds of changes are being implemented to help ensure something dumb like this doesn't happen again. I guess we'll see if that really happens. But the 3-day SLA credit, while not a huge amount of money for myself alone, I would imagine is a substantial sum when you consider all the Apps customers Google must have.
