Second time in two days! I just sent an email to friend. Yesterday I was having pop/mx issues using outlook with gmail, which must have been the cause of this -- but it was corrected.
I think I'll start to reconsider how much I invest in google. They are getting slow, and I'm seeing them go down frequently.

[edit reason] language - thx! [/edit]
I think it might have started yesterday because I ignored the repeated Outlook error messages (for a few hours) whenever it tried to check my unactivated google-apps email. I was hesitating to switch over my MX records mid-week, and should have deleted the new Outlook email account.
They shut down my main personal gmail acct, and two business google-apps accts. Yesterday and today. What a drag, specially as it happened shortly after sending them $100 for the new apps acct.
I'll have to see if there is a problem with checking 2-3 accts at the same time with pop email. Hopefully not, I would like this to work as an alternative to microsoft exchange.
This confirms to me that G-apps is not suitable for business and I'm going to cancel my accounts. Many people on here have mentioned how they don't want to get too tied up with Google and have them knowing everything about their business etc. But I have always reasoned that I don't have anything to hide from them but now I see that you can't give the keys to your business to Google because they can just shut you down at any time. (not to mention the SERPs)
I'm glad I checked this out in baby steps. To begin my disentanglement from the Gorg, I have just switched my default search engine to MSN Livesearch. More to follow. Cheers
