So this morning I logged into my iGoogle page only to discover that, as written about it several blogs the past few days that the GMail gadget no longer works as I have the 'use https' setting switched on in my GMail.
So as directed I then tried to visit GMail directly at www.gmail.com (using both a http and https connection) and got:
It seems that POP3 access is down at the moment too.
Doesn't seem that long since GMail's last outage. Given that GMail is such a fundamental part of iGoogle, it strikes me as odd that the services seem so fractured and that this issue of https should ever see the light of day and given that it is all Google real estate at the end of the day, it would be a nice idea if the status of the resolution to these outages appeared on my iGoogle page.
No mention yet of the current outage on the official GMail blog.
