On April 1st of 2004 Google launched Gmail as an invitation only beta release. Our little beta is all grown up now, it is definitely not by invitation only anymore! Happy Birthday Gmail 🙂
It’s not just you. Gmail went down, and everyone flipped out. At around 2 p.m. EST, Google’s email service became largely inaccessible, as confirmed by the website Down For Everyone Or Just Me. Gmail Down!
