Gmail Goes Down! For Many Google Apps and Regular Gmail Users (Updated)

Gmail and mail through Google Apps is down for a number of people today. The reports started an hour or two ago with the outage still affecting many. From what we have gathered, this is also causing Gmail apps to stop receiving mail. You may not see an error through the app, but you will want to check when the last time was that you received an email.

As you can see from the Gapps status page, Google is aware of the “service disruption.” If you experience a code 93 “Temporarily unavailable” – you are not alone.

Somehow I’ve been lucky this time around and can access everything, but both Eric and Tim are struggling to access at least one of their accounts.

Update 10:31AM: We are hearing that service has been restored for most of you. Check your accounts!

Cheers Lonnnie and everyone else!

    I never lost access on the PC or on the mobile website but it seemed to have killedmy auth token on my Galaxy Nexus. I was constantly getting “no connection – retry” messages on one of my accounts. I had to delete gmail app data and add the account back to get a new auth token and resolve it.

    There should be a sub stream of articles less important about statuses of services that are up or down. The headlines for these outages make it seem like the world is gonna end, when really just wait it out and you will be perfectly safe and okay. It’s not news, it comes off moreso obnoxious. This may be important to some, but some people throughout the day today are gonna see this, and have no idea when the hell this happened, and not even care. If I have a service stop working on my phone, I will assume the service is down and I will check with google or where ever to see whats up or if it is just me. That easy. Lets all breathe.

    Not sure why this is news worthy, if you look back this has happened a couple of times over the last week, with a similar small percentage of users experiencing it.

  • Mine just came back a couple minutes ago. I was down for almost 3 hours. Still good turnaround for what might have been a hardware failure on a *FREE* service. Props to Google for quickly resolving the issue.

  • What was really weird was this error did not affect all of my accounts, which leads me to believe that perhaps this was a physical hardware problem with a server AND that all of my accounts don’t live on that same server …

    Working fine for me, just received a notification actually.

    Mine was down, but now is back up. Much better than that damn flickering gmail app problem from not too long ago.

    Code 93? I wonder what the other 92 reasons are that Gmail might go down…

    PS: It has been working just fine for me today.
