Google's popular GMail service suffers disruption
SAN FRANCISCO Dec 10 (Reuters) - Google Inc's popular email product, GMail, appeared to go dark for users across North America and Europe on Monday.
Google confirmed there was a "service disruption" beginning around 9:30 a.m. Pacific Time but did not specify how many users were affected, or where.
"We're investigating reports of an issue with Google Mail. We will provide more information shortly," Google said on the Google Apps Dashboard, a website that provides status updates for the company's various Web products.
Firmly entrenched in the consumer market, GMail is one of Google's most popular and important product offerings. The search giant has been pushing a corporate version of the email service to businesses as part of its Google Apps software suite, which competes with Microsoft Office.
