Gmail is Down Again

Gmail is down again this morning. Frustration is spreading quickly via Twitter, as some users can’t access their email at all, while others are facing problem accessing their contacts and using chat.

Google has acknowledged the problem on their app status page:

We’re aware of a problem with Google Mail affecting a small subset of users. The affected users are unable to access Google Mail, but we’ve provided a workaround below. We will provide an update by September 24, 2009 8:59:00 PM UTC+5:30 detailing when we expect to resolve the problem. Please note that this resolution time is an estimate and may change.

You can access Gmail via IMAP.
