Over night we temporarily disabled access to some Gmail accounts due to a service disruption. The disables are in place to stop the account from changing whilst we make the necessary repairs.
Access to your accounts will be restored shortly. Whilst an account is disabled:
• You will be unable to sign in to any Google service.
• Mail sent to the account will bounce.
• Hosted content you own like blogs, sites, shared items in Google Reader and so on will be unavailable.
The message you see on sign-in may refer to you to Google terms of service, but this is a generic and incorrect message. You have not violated the terms of service and we'll restore your account access as soon as we can.
You can get the latest information on this service disruption here:
Google engineering teams are working around the clock to solve this problem. We fully understand the importance of your email and how disruptive this type of outage can be. The latest updates will be posted to the apps status dashboard linked to above.
Some users should have had access to their accounts fully restored. For other users who are still impacted, access to all Google services other than Gmail has been restored. For Gmail, on signing in you should see a message saying the account is under maintenance.
For these accounts mail is no longer bouncing and any blogs, sites etc connected to the accounts should be back.
We're working as fast as we can to fully repair the accounts that are still locked down.
