Gmail is Down Again

It’s been down this time for hours and hours with no explanation given

At the risk of being redundant, Gmail has come a cropper again.

It’s been down this time for hours and hours with no explanation given other than a “service outage” note.

At around 4pm Eastern time Google’s Apps Status page finally said, “Google Mail service has already been restored for some users, and we expect a resolution for all users within the next 1.2 hours. Please note this time frame is an estimate and may change.”

Tech Crunch says it was acting funny this morning, “but it appears now that it has completely crashed and disappeared.” Apps for Domains was down too.
