Gmail down this morning - Did I lose incoming emails?

Sent tests to myself from other accounts - no dice

I went to check my gmail this morning and it worked....then it didnt. 3 hours and several test messages later, we're back up and functional....

BUT NONE OF MY TEST EMAILS WERE RECEIVED!

Does this mean everyone who emailed me during these 3 hours are lost in cyber space forever? (right at he start of the business day - yikes)

I did the same as you a few months ago when GMail was done and no, my test emails never came through.

It's a neat little service, just not dependable enough to use for critical business purposes.

at least i'd expect them to have backup mx servers for these cases. but I don't use them anyways, so I don't care. ha!
