We have tried pinging Gmail website using our server and the website returned the above results. If mail.google.com is down for us too there is nothing you can do except waiting. Probably the server is overloaded, down or unreachable because of a network problem, outage or a website maintenance is in progress...

Can't Access Gmail - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Try alternative urls such as gmail.com, gmail.google.com

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

Our cell phones are not updating. We cannot get to our gmail accounts. Is the server down somewhere in the New Baltimore, NY 12192 area?

Glenda Ballengee · 31 March 2014 - 13:41

My iphone 4 gmail account hasn't updated since Friday, March 28th, I've check everything in my settings and I haven't changed anything either with my gmail. It will not update. I've turned the phone off and on a few times and it isn't doing anything. Up by the 3x is a wheel that is just spinning and down below it says it's connecting but never updates. I know I've received emails because I can check them on the computer, so I know my regular mailbox is working. Does anyone have suggestions, or problems? Thanks

Jon Maida · 27 March 2014 - 12:45

Cannot connect to server or get my e-mail's worked for like 2 minutes then went down again???

IMAP server looks like not functioning. I cannot sync my devices via the IMAP server from the day before yesterday.

Not sending out messages from one of my accounts, though.

Carol Chang · 26 January 2014 - 15:41

Sunday Jan 26 2014. I had trouble too, then realize my friend living a few kilometers away had access to her gmail BUT she accessed it through her Safari (an Apple browser) . So I tried access though Internet Explorer instead of my usual Chrome. Voila! Full access to my email! I wonder if it was setting we poked around with. I am trying to get rid of this sync business... if THAT goes down, we lose access to everything... so I tried unsync-ing stuff... perhaps THAT did it. Too much intrusion anyways.

Vogtle Ninh · 25 January 2014 - 17:46

Currently down in northern Virginia. I'm getting a heading message: "Temporary Error (500)" message and below that it says: "We're sorry but your gmail account is temporarily unavailable ..." blah blah blah. This blows. It was real buggy yesterday afternoon and last night also, and for weeks, on and off, I've had trouble sending attachments. They really should get it together.
