Sandcrawler PSA: Its Not You

Its Google

Its not just you: Gmail (Gmail) is indeed down. Weve been unable to connect to the popular email service from Google (Google) and receiving errors for at least 15-20 minutes (as of 4:00pm ET) and were not alone, as there are already thousands of tweets from frustrated users sharing the experience.

No word yet on the cause of the outage or when service might be restored. Well update here when we learn more.

We're hearing that some IMAP service is working and Rsluty got through via iPhone but everyone using a browser seems to be down. Chat is reported to work through 3rd party IM clients. Last word was they expect to be back in 1 to 2 hours. We'll see.

So if you are emailing Jawa's we're probably not getting it.

I feel so lost .... ;)

Update: And its back......
