Gmail suffers another outage after one day

Google suffered its second outage in as many days, with its email service Gmail going down on Tuesday for more than two hours.

Some Gmail users reported emails bouncing back and other error messages.
 
Google  confirms the issues on its services dashboard, writing at 1:30 PM Pacific that they’re impacting a “significant” number of users:
 
We’re aware of a problem with Gmail affecting a significant subset of users. The affected users are able to access Gmail, but are seeing error messages, high latency, and/or other unexpected behavior.
 
The issues were finally resolved shortly before 7 p.m. ET, the company said. At their peak, they affected nearly 18,000 users, according to monitoring site Downdetector.
 
“Please rest assured that system reliability is a top priority at Google, and we are making continuous improvements to make our systems better,” Google said.
 
On Monday, several of Google’s services went down for about an hour, including Gmail, YouTube and Google Classroom.
 
If you’re sending an email of any importance to a Gmail user right now, you’ll want to wait until this is fully fixed; if you’ve sent one in the last few hours, double check it was actually received.
