Google Mail Downtime

Right now, Google Mail disappeared just as I was about to send an email.

GMail service unavailable (google server down)

And I thought this would never happen!

(2 minutes later the service is up and running again)

UPDATE: Two things happened after going online again.

I found out my mail was actually sent before the server went down (so I ended up sending the mail twice)

According to the chat window in GMail, I’m now logged out. But I can still view, send mail and perform any other action in GMail. See screenshot below.

    I didn’t need to sign in again to make the chat window working again. I closed the window and opened a new one

    TIP: (redirects to the proper address)

    Actually for the last couple of hours, I have had problems, and it seems to come and go. Error code 717 when trying to send or save mail in GMail.

    The problem seems only for my personal account. I have two others that are working just fine.
