is anyone else having problems accessing gmail today? my entire office (though we should really be working) is going bonkers because gmail is refusing to load. additionally, google.com seems to be running unusually slowly at times. i don't think its out server because every single other website that any of try to access pops up just fine. please let me know if anyone else is having issues with gmail because i'm really curious about what's going on! thanks in advance!

No problems from here, Germany... but Gmail happens to be down every now and then. Google.com on the other hand not really.

It was fine for me yesterday, but now I'm getting this message:

<< Server Error

We're sorry, but Google Mail is temporarily unavailable. We're currently working to fix the problem – please try logging in to your account in a few minutes. >>

Edit: And 4 minutes later, it's back again.

google is fine in the Philippines., but Google Mail is excruciatingly slow and has been so for the last four days. I don't think this has anything to do with the cable break off Taiwan as Yahoo etc. are up to par.

my gmail in NJ,USA is fine but i have a question about gmail. Why is it that it gets so slow that it basically turns off or refuses to work? I've had many days where gmail would refuse to send/search/compose mail. It's very annoying and it is at times when I need something very important. I understand google is improving some art of gmail, but I don't notice or hear the changes they are making. Is there someway to know what they are doing behind those gates? Or atleast a page where these downtimes are listed?

i'm in mountain view, litterally minutes a way from google headquarters & i cant even get to the gmail login screen! gmail notifyer works, so i can see all the really important emails i'm getting, but i cant actually view them! to me it seems like it went down at 6 p.m. last night & now it's 8 a.m. thats a lot of down time.

have never had trouble, until now (in New Zealand on holiday). I can log on but when I try to send mail, "Oops ... the system was unable to perform your operation (error code 008). Please try again in a few seconds."

When I try to access gamil via www.gmail.com, my browser kept reloading without displaying anything on the screen. Is it a problem with Gmail's server? or am I attacked by a virus?

Does anyone have a customer service number for Google? My Gmail has been out since Friday, January 19th. Not only mine in Georgia, but my son's in North Carolina. The message says the account is disabled. What reasons would an account be disabled without the customer being informed? Does it have anything to do with a Google purchase of a North Carolina software company? Has this happened to anyone else?
