MESSAGE: "Unable to reach Gmail. Please check your internet connection..... ashtruth 6/14/09 11:26 PM
For over a month now,
1. AFTER logging into G Mail, the connection with the Gmail server seems to suddenly get cut or is inaccessible:
 when I try to send mail OR click  a link in my mail to open it in another tab OR send an email with attachment OR try to move a mail into a labeled folder. I must clarify that during these problem-moments, my internet connection is fine and all other sites on the Net are accessible. All images in any email received are also openable.

2. WHEN I try to "Sign Out" (during such moments) I am not allowed to sign-out. The message "Loading" and "Unable to reach Gmail" and "Retrying in...secs..." keep re-appearing. Finally after a long wait and after many clicks to sign out, I have to close the browser window. On re-opening the browser page & rechecking with the Gmail Login page to see if the sign out has occurred, it mostly shows that it has logged out
BUT there is also the odd occasion when my HomePage (which is Firefox-Google) show sme still logged in despite the numerous clicks I have attempted to log out.

I have checked out "Gmail Help" and the Forum for solutions. Have done as instructed under "Tools" but to no avail.
I have also changed my Firewall settings to unblock and allow Google site accessibility to my PC but the problem still persists.

THUS, I am unable to use my Gmail account much.
CAN U PLEASE GIVE ME A SOLUTION URGENTLY PLEASE?
Thanks very much.

Same problem here. Cleaned up cache, cookies, everything. Sometime it works only once after the cleaning. Almost does not work at all.

I have just changed the DNS server my PC is using and gmail worked. I am not sure whether it is directly related to the problem or not.

Can you please tell us, what OS and which browser you're using?
Have you tried using an alternative browser, to see whether it is the configuration of your current browser that is causing the problem (as seems most likely)?
Another likely culprit (from your description above) is the AV program you're using.

My info: WinXP, Firefox 3.0.0.10. Though the same problem happens in Opera, IE 6 and IE 8 and Linux/Firefox. I disabled everything: AV, firewall, add-ons. My wife has the same problem in her machine, which was solved after changing the DNS server. We are accessing from Brazil.

I am having the same problem on my mac using either firefox or safari. i don't seem to have the problem when i use firefox on windows xp on the same machine using parallels desktop however. on the leopard OS version of firefox, i have cleaned my cache, cookies, etc., and it doesn't help. I also tried firefox in safe mode and it still didn't work. I tried various versions of gmail, basic, secure, html, older, and none of the versions worked very well either. i wonder what is going on.

I'm having the same problem on Ubuntu. It started two days ago with my gmail, my wife's gmail and my work google apps mail. I've tried in several browsers on three different computers. Pop works fine. I can get to my mail from my iGoogle page most of the time as well. I'm using OpenDNS, but even when I switched back to my default ISP's dns, the problem persisted. I've tried clearing my cache, cookies and temp files which will help it for a few minutes before it goes back to stalling.

Same problem here - ashtruth - thanks for desribing this perfectly well

No use switching between IE, Firefox and Opera 9.6.

Applies to a few colleagues of mine, while someone sitting behind same firewall and having same settings - no problem with access

Recently we changed DNS

John W2. I sent in a reply. Not sure if it made it to its destination (Gmail forum) since its not sighted, resending it .
Appreciate your tips. I'm using XP n' Firefox 5.0. I've also tried Google Chrome and IE but no luck with the problem.
You mention "AV program". Not sure whatU mean. Are U talking about media players like Win amp etc? How do they really affect Gmail and then, if so, why only Gmail? It should happen to Hotmail etc too
Hey Mykhaylo...I too tried the "Changing DNS" avenue but has also not helped.
And judging by the long list of guys sharing this problem...seems a common one.
GMail Techies are U listening to all these plaints? Guys, Can U suggest some way out?

Same problem here.  I have two computers on this internet connection.  One (vista computer) is accessing gmail just fine, the other (xp) keeps choking.  This was in firefox 3.0x and also in the new 3.5 firefox.  I've disabled all of my add ons, as well as gmail notifier and google toolbar, I've cleared history and cache.  Nothing has helped.  gmail is almost impossible to use right now and this has been happening for a few weeks.  I am not having problems with any other websites, just gmail and other google apps.

I, too, have been having gmail problems for the last couple of weeks.  I go online and am fine.  I can do anything, go anywhere, all my online programs work.  Then I decide to check my gmail.  I may be able to log into the gmail account but then my internet connection is cut totally.  I can't open another window, can't close the gmail one.  I get the 'working,' 'reloading,' 'please check connection,' etc. messages.  I thought it was some other problem since I've never experienced 'issues' with gmail.  It has taken me a couple of weeks checking everything out but I have finally figured it out--gmail is the problem.  I use IE, XP.  What is happening with gmail?

I, too have been having the same problems for the last week . I go to my Gmail and I can check my mail but can not reply to my messages or send an email at all
it just keeps reading "sending" or " Loading" I can use and do anything else just not Gmail, I have done everything I can think of.
I have never had a problem with gmail before.

We can't assume that the problems we see here are all the same problem.

But I can tell you I had the same problem, and I did one thing which solved it. So my case may be one scenario. In my case I had set the DNS server, in my network settings, to be my own computer. When, in fact, I needed to let the router handle the DNS. Once I changed the DNS from my computer to the router, my Gmail loading problems were solved.

I've been getting the "cannot connect to server at mail.google.com" message even though I'm clearly online; other sites work just fine. I can't access the Gmail tab, but can sign in to my account and see my calendar, reader, etc, just fine. It doesn't matter what browser I use or which of our home computer's I'm on. Sometimes I will see my inbox, but I'm in offline mode, and trying to connect does nothing. Anything I click on that page that requires an internet connection (which I'm obviously connected to) sayd "sorry try this action again when you're connected to the internet." It's been like this for 3 or 4 days now.
Fortunately I have another gmail account that I've switched to that works just fine. My husband can access his account with no problems.
Oh yeah, I'm on a Mac, but as my husband can access his account on either my Mac or his PC I don't think this is all of the issue.
HELP! I want my email back!
Thanks,
rebecca

I too am having the problem of experiencing Gmal as practially useless due to not connecting to slow connection and Error Some Gmail features have failed to load.
My wife's account is experiencing the same thing.
I do also have a remote connection over internet to my office in the US so I can access a remote computer from my location in Ireland. I access my Gmail account on the remote server and it works great.
Why dont Gmail support get off their asses and fix this problem...dont they care about their service?
Apparently not. Time to move on....

I'm connecting to gmail from mozilla. i have an excellent WiFi connection and yet Gmail often has connection problems, and I cannot send my email. Why the hell can't you get through directly to Gmail for an answer????

Gmail accessible to Firefox but not Chrome??!!??  Chrome can reach other sites but not Gmail???!!?!?  What good is Chrome?
Re: MESSAGE: "Unable to reach Gmail. Please check your internet connection..... GoanParadise 8/26/10 1:20 AM
Found Solution.
Wow!!! How Stupid of Gmail. I had unchecked "load images Automatically". I do not want them. But Gmail is forcing it, otherwise gtalk plugin does not work.

So put an exception to https://mail.google.com/ site for loading images and gtalk plugin works.
