I just got locked out of my Gmail account. How terribly inconvenient. I had seen reviews about Gmail Drive in several places stating how it enables your computer to send your files to your Gmail since each account allows quite a bit of storage. Silly me. I was not aware it apparently violates Gmail's Terms of Service and as a result, have been officially "locked down."
When I try to login, it reads:
Account Lockdown: Unusual Activity Detected
Unusual account activity includes, but is not limited to:
Receiving, deleting, or downloading large amounts of mail via POP in a short period of time.
Sending a large number of undeliverable messages (messages that bounce back).
Using file-sharing or file-storage software, browser extensions, or third party software that automatically logs in to your account.
Leaving multiple instances of your Gmail account open.
Browser-related issues. Please note that if you find your browser continually reloading while attempting to access your Inbox, it’s probably a browser issue, and it may be necessary to clear your browser’s cache and cookies.
So an easy way to put it - Do NOT use Gmail Drive... there's no use for it if it can't even back up your files without screwing you.
If it's not Twitter, it's something else....
My beloved Gmail has let me down for the past hour (as I see it has let down everyone else).
It all began when I sent a contact an email and it gave me an error saying it had not been sent. I pressed send again to get the same message and then again. By the time I knew it, although I had been told the email didn't go through, this poor recipient stalkerishly received 5 of the same emails. Then this dreadful screen came up...
Now my life is frozen.... no access to my mail and no access to my calendar... Thanks for everything GFail.
As Andy Beal has stated...we officially now need an image that is Gmail's equivalence to the Fail Whale.
