Gmail Server Error August 17, 2005

Posted by dhar in Misc.

Gmail is temporarily unavailable. Cross your fingers and try again in a few minutes. We’re sorry for the inconvenience.

If you know the service is gonna be down for more than a couple of hours (as is the case with Gmail currently), kindly let the users know. Telling them to try again in a few minutes is simply wrong.

Rant aside, does anyone have any idea what is wrong with Gmail and why it is down for such a long period?

PS: Looks like I am the only one having problems with Gmail. Bugger! 😦

PPS: Latest update…. my account is working just fine now.

Could be the W32.Zotob.E virus!! They might be updating their systems against the attack! (wild guess)

I doubt Google would be running apps like Gmail on Windows boxen. Either way, it means I have been unable to access my mails for over 2 days now. Argggh! :((

I have been having problems with gmail for the last two days(its ok today). And the service remains out for hours on a stretch.

And I am using Linux/Firefox.

Ahaa… finally someone else who too seems to be having problems with Gmail.

But unlike you, Sumo Man, I am unable to login even now. Arggh!! :((

Have mailed a couple of friends at Google. Hoping that the issue gets sorted out soon….

It’s a ploy;
They’ve tracked you down, Dhar;

Just you wait… Your account will probably be next in line. :))

Since I signed up Gmail account and was accepted on August 30, I haven’t been able to use Gmail. I use Linux Fedora 2 and Mozilla browser. Is there any anything wrong about my system? Or Server Error always happens?

My Gmail has not worked since Friday … 3 days without email is kiling and I use this as my primary account. Missed a lot of work emails too which I wanted to work over the weekend … My life got miserable (read-screwed) because I relied on Gmail too much

Wonder when Server Error is going to be resolved
