Trying to log in to mobile gmail (m.gmail.com) and getting an XML Parsing Failed – the input fields are not valid xml (missing />) I get this in Opera, Opera mini and in firefox – in IE I get a temp file that is not recognised as xml

Is this a known problem?

I too am having trouble loading gmail on my mac Safari browser. Until this week I never had any problems. It works fine at work but isn't loading on the laptop. If anyone figures out what the problem is I'd really appreciate an email...... lemuelodell[put at-character here]gmail.com. Thanks!

ive been trying to send/reply to gmail emails, but just cannot. i havent altered or corrected my address book or contacts, and i can receive email on a daily basis and access them, but cant send! an error message pops up; 'some of the addresses in the reply to field are not recognised. please make sure that all addresses are properly formed'. ive ensured, and made sure and checked ove and triesd different combinations, and deleted commas and i still get that same error message from every computer i try to send mail from.

should i just get another email? the buddies at the 'gmail team support' keep sending me templates on how to clear cache, and send messages...totally useless..

thanks!!!

My husband is having the same problem with gmail, but I am not! We found that if you type mail.google.com in your browser address bar, go to that link and sign in IT WORKS!! I don't know why this is happening.

Nothing! I clear my cache, deleted cookies, turned off pop-up blockers, turned of Norton Internet securtiy, tried typing mail.google.com in Address bar & Tried to log in manually. Every link to Gmail of any kind comes up "Cannot find server," and "Page Cannot be displayed." This has been going on for 4 days. I even tried System Restore on Windows XP.

Hello Everyone, please help me to find a solution to this most unusual problem that is I am not able to open Gmail.com from WinXP. I have tried all explorers like Internet explorer, Opera, Netscape and Mozilla FireFox. I am able to open other secured sites and all other sites too like google, hotmail, yahoo, microsoft.com, etc. I am able to open gmail.com from my other Operating system i.e. Win98.
I am hoping for your prompt reply.

Regards
Sumit

No, not the right answer.

If you are from US, Australia, New Zealand, Indonesya, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand or Turkey, you're lucky.

Actually, I think you should be able to enable "POP" in the Gmail settings, and then hook it up to your Outlook...

unfortunately, we are all suffering from the same problem, that is that we are unwilling to admit that our gmail accounts are often unaccessible because, likely, google people have higher priorities than gmail. i think we were the bait to get others to bite...

Hey I have the same problem as WELL!!! The page keeps refreshing in the "loading" page and I cannot log in. But yea my gmail notifier works. I tried logging in other computers and it works. But it does not work in my computer. I tried disabiling the Northern Anti Virus but there is no help. Send email to gmail help term or something but they just refer me to another self-help page and it is not working whatsoever.

HELP both of US – someONE

OK everyone, delete your cache & cookies, and try to login to Gmail again. Also expand this thread to find more information.
