Further to the flurry of comments asking whether anyone else is experiencing problems with Google Mail, I tried to answer in comment thread over there >>>, but thought you might like to see images too.

This is one place you can check if gmail or google mail goes down and you’d like to find out more:

Google Apps Status Dashboard

Currently, at 22:45 on 1 September 2009, that page looks like this:

and if you click on that wrench (spanner) you’ll see more details, like this:

I hope that helps those of you who were asking where you could find more information.  It doesn’t tell you about today’s outage, but sometimes Google does provide advance notification of certain functions on particular apps operating in different ways (as in the comment about Docs in that screenshot).

P.S. After posting this, I can see that the Official Gmail Blog now has posts covering today’s Gmail problems and more on today’s Gmail issue.
