Gmail Server Error

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....

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

I have no idea what is happening with more and more frequency. It hapens to go down when i sometimes need it the most. I used hotmail for years, but the SPAM was just toom much....I mean who has the time to read every piece of SPAM? LOL....but more and more the server is down on GMAIl and it is of a great concern since I rely on GMAIL as a repository for stuff...what happens if google like so many quick starts gets too big for their own good...we suffer.
