We're aware of a problem with Gmail affecting a small subset of users.
The affected users are unable to access Gmail. We will provide an
update by February 24, 2009 6:30 AM PST detailing when we expect to
resolve the problem. Please note that this resolution time is an
estimate and may change
Business and consumer users of Google's popular e-mail service were hit by an outage on Tuesday.
The service went offline at 0930 GMT with Google saying it was "working hard to resolve this problem".
In a statement, Google said "a number of users" were having problems with Google Mail.
"We know how important GMail is to our users so we take this very seriously," it added.
I told them that I'm convinced of their reliability and that I regard every E-mail that's sent through the open jungle as "public" anyway.
One pro-argument gone.
Points to consider:
The temporary crash of Gmail affected office work across millions of offices around the world as a large part of the official mail is often carried on Gmail. In India, the Google email service provider is also used by government officials.
Does the Indian government really run on a free beta service?
