Gmail Offline

No no. I’m not talking about accessing Gmail without the internet. To hell with that. You can’t even access your Gmail account online. Damn. Gfail is finally here. Every other Google service is working fine – Reader, Picasa, Documents, Orkut, etc. Even iGoogle and Google News! Not Gmail, though. Here’s what Gmail Support has to say.

We’re aware of a problem with Gmail affecting a number of users. This problem occurred at approximately 1.30AM Pacific Time [3.00 PM IST] . We’re working hard to resolve this problem and will post updates as we have them. We apologize for any inconvenience that this has caused.

I write this post at 5.54 PM IST, and Gmail still isn’t working. Hope it returns.

If anyone of you knows how to make Gmail work, please comment and let me know!


Forget it, guys. The second I posted, Gmail has begun to work again.

If it still doesn’t work click here or here. It will ask you to Add Gmail to you iGoogle page. Go to iGoogle and access Gmail. Once I clicked on Compose Mail, Gmail worked fine!

    @Tapas: Hmm. Chat is working for me. I saw you online last night. Use Pidgin.

    Had forgotten about pidgin.

    @Tapas: It sure does! It’s a new theme developed recently. It has 2 sidebars, a custom image header, and powerful css support. The coolest part: it supports custom colours for the sidebars!
