So, looks like gmail is down again

I use Thunderbird to connect to gmail via a POP server for 2 accounts: my real account and my junk mail account. Noticed I haven't gotten a single message all day, and about 6 hours ago got a text that someone was sending me an attachment. Still don't have it.

About 30 minutes ago I had one of my accounts send mail to the other, still haven't got that either.

So, if you use gmail and aren't getting any mail today, you aren't alone.

Note I get no POP errors, and I can log into No new mail, but no errors either.

Reminds me of something that happened a couple months ago. I'm in a play by email game, day before the turn is due they run my turn for errors and give me a chance to fix them. I got the error check and the turn at the same time. Looking at the headers, the error report had arrived at 24 hours earlier and, well, just sat there. grrr

Update: just got my testing email to myself, still none of the usual crap from ebay, paypal, billmelater, amazon, my insurance agent, avast, western digital, etc etc etc.

It's a no-brainer. We just need to take it to the next level to turn this into a win-win situation. The best practice is to get rid of the low-hanging fruit first. Ping me with an agenda so we can go flag up on this thing

Doesn't look like a known issue

When I turned my laptop on this morning I immediately got all of yesterday's mail.
I agree. Here's the link:
