NEW DELHI, INDIA:''502. That's an error. The server encountered a temporary error and could not complete your request. Please try again in 30 seconds. That's all we know,'' If you are getting this message when you log in to Gmail, you are probably not the only one who is facing this problem.


Gmail seems to be down yet again in India. This is the fourth time it's happening over the past few months. ''Gmail goes down once again... One of the things you don't want to happen when your business is built on top of it,'' tweets a user.

''Aah since Gmail is down ...there will be a Huge Influx of People on twitter ranting abt it,'' says another. ''More and more people are logging in #Gmail either to find the truth or to tweet about that'' tweets a user who has logged on to Twitter to find out the truth.

Ostensibly, it might be because of IP communications issues between Google servers catering to India. In Google's support page words, "Whenever you're seeing a 'Temporary Error (502)' message when you try to sign in to Gmail, it means that your mail is temporarily unavailable. These errors generally resolve themselves within a few minutes, so please wait a bit before trying to log in again."

On May 13 it was persistent for more than an hour. The previous two occasions of Gmail outage were on May 2 and May 8.
