Gmail is down for many users, as thousands of people reported Tuesday that they were experiencing service issues on the popular e-mail site.
Gmail, the e-mail service provided by Google, has a reputation for being the most reliable e-mail client out there, but that rep was called into question on Tuesday, when the site appeared to face more than a few issues.
Many users received the following message on Tuesday when trying to log into the site: We're sorry, but your Gmail account is temporarily unavailable. We apologize for the inconvenience and suggest trying again in a few minutes. If the issue persists, please visit the Gmail Help Center.
At a little bit past 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, the official Gmail Twitter account tweeted the following out, hoping to quell people's worries about the site's unavailability: #Gmail should be back for some of you already, and will be back for everyone soon. Thanks for your patience.
But Twitter users were aflutter over the outage. Twitter user @LaneSutton tweeted the following message, echoing the sentiments of thousands of people who use the popular social media site and Google mail: You can go outside! It's official: #Gmail down for many.
But it appeared by 1:40 p.m. Tuesday that the issue was being addressed, according to Twitter user @irtezaubaid, who tweeted the following message: Finally #Gmail is up and running, too much pending emails to be sent.
