Below is a statement from the company.
?A very small number users are having difficulty accessing their Gmail accounts, and in some cases once they?re in, trouble viewing emails. This is affecting less than .08% of our Gmail user base, and we?ve already fixed the problem for some users. Our engineers are working as quickly as possible and we hope to have everything back to normal as soon as possible. We?re very sorry for the inconvenience.?
