    Gmail Not Working

    For the last 2 days I cannot access Gmail. All I see is the message "Information is temporarily unavailable". I have 3 computers. I get this same message on all 3 computers. I need to access my Gmail as I have important business to conduct. I have cleared cache in IE - didn't help. Google is not a small operation. I would think that if they have a problem where users can't access email they would jump right on it and fix it. Not let it stay down for days on end.

    Anyone else in or near PA seeing this?

    Yeah, lots of hits. But no information. It seems that no one knows how to fix this. I use Gmail for my eBay business and when it is down it impacts real hard on me. No access for 2 days now. ON THREE COMPUTERS!!!!!

    If it's all 3 computers, then maybe it's your router. Make/model? Did you reboot your router and modem?

    Did you check the dns settings? You could try Google DNS.

    Can you get to gmail on your cell phone?

    Thompson Speedtouch router/modem was rebooted 4 or 5 times. DNS is OK. No problem with any other website. Only Google mail. No access on cell phone.

    Have you tried a different browser. Google suggests that this error is usually cause by a temporary problem with a third party gadget.

    EDIT: I guess your phone qualifies as a different browser.

    FINALLY!! I fixed it several days ago. I just wanted a few days to play with it to be 100% sure it is fixed. I deleted the Google Finance Portfolio gadget. Google mail now opens in the blink of an eye. If anyone else experiences a similar problem with Gmail not loading and producing the same error message, start deleting gadgets until you find the culprit.

    Try to change your basic version to html and change it again in standard version
