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.
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.
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.
