Google says it “pinpointed” cause of Gmail crash

If you’ve been cursing the Google for its spotty e-mail service today, relief is on the way.

A Gmail help posting a few minutes ago said engineers “have pinpointed the issue causing the 502 errors and it looks as if users should start to regain normal functioning of their account.”

Some in the Silicon Valley echo chamber are sugggesting it’s Twitter time but that’s not a replacement for Web mail.

I wonder what the Gmail hiccups have done to Yahoo and Windows Live mail usage.
