Gmail down!

As unusual as it may seem, Gmail crashed down world wide (around 9:30 AM GMT) this morning.
The problem seems general.

Basically it was then impossible to connect to one's Gmail inbox.

Google is of course aware of the problem and are trying to solve it as soon as possible.

This impacts Gmail free and Enteprise.

A status is available on the Gmail support page, it currently shows:


We're aware of a problem with Gmail affecting a number of users. This problem occurred at approximately 1.30AM Pacific Time. We're working hard to resolve this problem and will post updates as we have them. We apologize for any inconvenience that this has caused.


Concerning the impact on email Marketing:
I just received a lot of emails on my Gmail account a few minutes ago, so emails apparently shouldn't bounce back.

In any case, you will probably have poor results on email campaigns broadcasted this morning to Gmail users.
