Gmail outage: some accounts now restored

Just 0.02 per cent of users hit by Gmail failure says Google.

Last weekend’s major Gmail outage appears to be coming to an end, with Google saying its restored access to around one third of those hit by problems. The Big G has said only around 0.02 per cent of all Gmail users couldn’t access their email.

On its Apps Status Dashboard, Google said, “Google Mail service has already been restored for some users, and we expect a resolution for all users in the near future. Please note this time frame is an estimate and may change.”

It added, “Email was never lost and we’ve restored access for many of those affected. Though it may take longer than we originally expected, we're making good progress and things should be back to normal for everyone soon.”

Google has also posted to its Gmail blog, detailing the problems, saying software bugs affected several data copies. However, it’s been keen to play the whole incident down as a minor glitch.
