HELP ME if you know ANYTHING about GMAIL

I've always loved my gmail account. I mean, we've only been together for a few months, but in those few months I've fallen hard. And I always thought that if it was legal to marry an internet email server, gmail and I would be on the first plane to Vermont, or wherever.

But gmail is fucking breaking my heart today.

I have not been able to access my gmail account since 11:30 this morning. I try to get into my account and I get a message that says:

Server Error
We're sorry, but Gmail is temporarily unavailable. We're currently working to fix the problem -- please try logging in to your account in a few minutes.


Gmail! You said "a few minutes!!!" It's been hours!!!

I am going batty. I need help.

Are there any other gmail users out there who are having the same problem??? Is this a universal problem or is it just me??? And if it's just me, what the fuck??? And if what the fuck, then how do I get out of this??? How do I access my email??? I need help! (For many reasons, but the problem that's tantamount right now [is that how you spell "tantamount"?] is that I am addicted to email and I am jonesing and I need my fucking fix and what the frig is wrong with gmail and how do I freaking get it to work again?????)

i've been using my gmail all day.

My gmail just came back, but it didn't receive any of the email during its "dark" hours for me today--from noonish until 5pm. And I know of one email specifically that was sent to me. So gmail and I are in the middle of a fight, it seems.

my gmail has also been working fine.

do you use gmail notifier? i love it, love it, love it.

did you look in your spam folder for the missing e-mail?

Are you accessing it through a shortcut? If so, then try going to http://www.gmail.com and logging in that way. Could be your shortcut isn't working...Mine does that every once in a while.

Erik said...

ok, ok, i don't know what was wrong with it all day, but it's finally working and i got the emails from today, they finally came through.

ahhhh!

christy and drc, thank you for the suggestions.

I've been accessing Gmail just fine online, but my Blackberry hasn't been able to access it for days. Weird.

Jesse said...

maybe we all need to channel our inner 1991 when we didn't have email, unless we were super nerds.

Angela said...

Gmail had a fairly major outage yesterday. (But it didn't affect everyone.)

Erik said...

Angela, thank you for making me think I'm not crazy.

Erik said...

But why the fuck is gmail having outages?????? That scares me. I guess I should learn to not be so dependant on me email like Jesse so snarkily suggested.

Erik said...

Melanie, is your blackberry accessing gmail again? My gmail is working perfectly today. Hallefreakinglujia.

Melanie said...

My Gmail still isn't working with my Blackberry, but I'm calling T-Mobile tonight to figure it out. I'm one of those "super nerds" who *needs* my email wherever I go. It's the only way I can pry myself away from the computer. :)

Erik said...

I'm right there with you, Melanie. Good luck!

Melanie said...

Thanks for your support! After 1/2 hour on the phone w/ T-Mobile, I was able to get it working by forwarding my Gmail to the Blackberry. It works!

Erik said...

Melanie, I'm doing a happy jig for you and your blackberry right now. (People should do happy jigs more often. It really increases the happy.)
