If you have a Gmail inbox preview widget on your Protopage, you may notice that it has been displaying a message:
‘There has been a problem connecting to your email server with the details you have given. Please check with your email service provider for the correct details.’
Google appear to be having network problems – which is why your email inbox previews are not working. Depending on your Internet Service Provider, you may or may not currently be able to access the site directly at http://gmail.google.com
This seems to be an issue affecting some parts of the internet and not others. We hope that access to Gmail from our servers will work again soon. We’ll keep you posted – and thanks to everyone that has written in about this.
UPDATE: Gmail is now working again.
