Alert: Sporadic GMail Problems

We are experiencing sporadic problems accessing Google Mail and Chat.  These problems are affecting many Google customers, not just Macalester. Other Google services, including Calendar and Drive, do not seem to be affected.  We will post updates as more detailed information becomes available.


  1. We are getting reports that most people are able to get into and use GMail normally. Google has not yet confirmed an official fix, nor the cause of the sporadic problems. If you are still experiencing difficulty, please try quitting and restarting your Web browser.

  2. As of 12:10 PM, Google reports that the problem is fixed: "The problem with Google Mail should be resolved. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience and continued support. Please rest assured that system reliability is a top priority at Google, and we are making continuous improvements to make our systems better."
