Gmail has been down, reportedly worldwide, for a tleast an hour for me now.
But there is a workaround.
If you have POP access or IMAP enabled accounts setup, you can still access your Gmail. It works fine. Here is a list of supported POP clients if you don’t have one.
If you don’t have either, another option is to use iGoogle and add a Gmail widget. It’s very simple to do if you haven’t tried iGoogle yet.
Hope you enjoyed this quick tip. No more Gmail-fail withdrawal symptoms.
