Twitter this morning lit up with complaints from users who said they could not access their mail. While there’s no official word from Google or the Gmail blog, user complaints on Twitter (dramatically) suggest that the outage was a global occurrence.
Google updated the Apps Status Dashboard at 10:19 a.m. GMT, detailing pretty much nothing but giving itself plenty of time to fix the issue.
Roughly 20 minutes later, Google reported that the problem had been resolved and everything should be back to normal.
There has so far been no reports of lost mail as a result of this outage.
