Is Gmail down?
Many Gmail users were faced with messages like this one on Tuesday.

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.
