I have used Gmail more than 1 year without any problems. But today its been down all day and still is down! This is the message I get:


Temporary Error (502)

Damn.. I forgot how much I use emails..

I think some other people on Digg talk about this too, so I am not the only one. But all my friends and people I study with still has access.

Does your Gmail work? Anyone know how long this will take?:confused:

EDIT: Its been down for at least 10 hours!!

Mine works too, worked this morning and right now. Where do you live? Maybe its a local thing, a problem between your connection (wherever you live) and the servers of Gmail. Just a guess. Try asking someone who lives near you to check gmail. If they work too... I am clueless.

Mine too, but I've had this happen randomly in the past. You'll just have to wait it out, should be fine in ten minutes or so.

Were you doing anything illicit or storing any files that were illegal/inappropriate? Only thing that pops into my mind when ya say only you can't see gmail is that your IP has been banned/account banned.

Well, if it persists into tommorow here is the Gmail Help Centre (http://mail.google.com/support/?ctx=about). And I am not sure but maybe this one thread in particular applies to you... http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=46346

I just thought about it, but maybe it just might be that the server where your account and information is stored is down for maintenance... hope it get fixed, good luck.

Sounds like server problems or something. I've had similar things happen with my hotmail account where it won't let me in because of server issues or something.

Me too.. but usually its only for a few mins.. or max 1 hour. This has been going on for 10 or 12 hours. Really all day, and its 3 am now. Well theres not much to do. Lets hope they are back tomorrow.

I'm off to bed.. Good night and thanks all!

Hehe, oh well... I guess its just down then. Seems odd that this problem would be so wide spread, google usually has faster turn around.Hope them google folks get it fixed soon, best wishes till then.

Gnight then.

ep2011: How long has your account been like this?

I think a few hours, but that is based on google.com/ig having the gmail thing show "not avaliable" I haven't checked it since I saw this post and tried it... And no I don't do anything illegal, accept check my email :p

The gmail website is down but I am still receiving messages via pop3 and evolution.

So the gmail mail server is up but not the website server.

Google's Gmail service down nearly 2 hours

Ryan Kim,James Temple
Wednesday, September 2, 2009
Google Inc.'s Gmail service was down for nearly two hours on Tuesday, another in a series of outages that analysts claim can undermine confidence in online applications.
The Mountain View search company said it fixed the problem, which affected most Gmail users, around 2:40 p.m. It is still investigating the cause.
"We're terribly sorry for the inconvenience," wrote David Besbris, engineering director, on Google's Gmail blog shortly after the outage began.
Google experienced a widespread outage that lasted several hours on Feb. 24. Smaller problems occurred March 11, April 16 and May 8.
Analysts say businesses and consumers will only full-heartedly adopt online applications and data storage, known as cloud computing, if they are assured they can access them whenever they need to. Technical snafus like these can undermine that confidence. That's especially true for businesses, which Google is increasingly targeting with its online e-mail and office applications.
"This is one of the reasons that corporate e-mail has not moved to the cloud," said Tim Bajarin, president of Creative Strategies in Campbell. "Under no circumstances do they want to have the system taken down."
In fairness, corporate e-mail accounts, home DSL lines and traditional software have a nasty habit of malfunctioning on occasion, too. Google said that during the outage, users could continue to send and receive e-mail using services like POP, and access old mail using Gmail offline.
