Earlier this week I saw about 300 visits over a 24 hour period from people searching for solutions to the error message they were getting when logging into Gmail. I have seen over 800 in the last hour. Sure enough, my gmail is out too with a Temporary Error (502). POP3 seems to be working. Following my survival guide, I checked the Gmail google group. The issue for today, 11 August 2008, is a known issue with the web interface, they acknowledge that POP3 and IMAP are still working.
Here is to all of you and myself, let us hope it comes back up soon.
Update 1: Mine is back up after about an hour. Anybody else?
Update 2: 2,000+ hits in an hour because of this. Media Temple server holding up nicely.
