Gmail: Temporary Error 502

Update: Were any of you using Google Labs for Gmail? If so, please leave a comment! I’m trying to get to the bottom of this myself. Thanks!

Update #2: Thanks to Flo, we have a link that should get you in for now: Also, according to Google Help, you may want to try to disable Google Labs if you have it enabled.

Has anyone out there seen this before? I’ve been seeing this more and more often lately…

Temporary Error 502


  1. Babu says:

    I am also getting this error for the past few hours 😦

  2. Chelsey says:

    I’m getting this for the first time today. Did some searching and I guess many users were without their gmail for 24 hours on August 6th and 7th. I hope I don’t have to wait that long. Very annoying…

  3. Gary says:

    Yeah, I’m getting this today, too (for about a half hour so far).

  4. Atsuke says:

    Yeah, I’m getting it right now–I’m pissed off.

  5. I’ve never seen it before today. Now my gmail account shows this… It’s been a few hours and there are still no changes. I am not too happy…

  6. Esteban says:

    Yes, I see it everywhere! It started awhile ago.

  7. Tom says:

    First time I’ve seen it was today. Since I reply on gmail for a lot of things this could have been much worse if it had happened during the day.

    Better get an IMAP mail server and get it synced so there’s a backup when it goes down again 😦

  8. jymi says:

    I’ve been fighting this all morning 😦 Grrrrr…

  9. Raimundo says:

    I’m seeing it today (08/11/08), as well. First time for me. Hope it’s not the beginning of a trend.

  10. flo says:

    i also got this just today 🙂

  11. Ann says:

    You’re not alone:

    I wonder what’s up with Google.

  12. LorMills says:

    I have been seeing that for several hours, and can’t access my email.

  13. Sam says:

    My first time seeing it today

  14. Sarah says:

    This is the first time I’ve seen this error message, but I’ve got it too. According to the Google’s own community, it’s happened a few times this summer. None of the tips over at Google Blogoscoped ( ) worked for me, but maybe they will help you out.

    try using the gmail html version via:

  16. Nibar says:

    Same here with Google for my domain! But works on my Blackberry. Thanks flo for the tip, it works! I’m guessing the Blackberry must use a similar switch.

  17. kk says:

    Been 502 for over an hour now, first time I’ve seen this.

    flo’s html url is working for me.

  18. sunzoje says:

    ^ thanks it does indeed work

  19. JT says:

    Hello everyone, I noticed that one of my gmail accounts wasn’t working at 6pm EDT and it’s back now, as of 6:40pm EDT. Hope yours starts working soon.

  20. Miss Marjie says:

    That error lasted foreeever today. At work, I actually had amuse myself with scrabble as opposed to amusing myself with scrabble and gabbing at people.

  21. Alex says:

    temp error 502. Five hours with this now. I’m in Mexico. Maybe its time to use the automatic forward function to redirect all incoming mails to another webmail account, maybe mail2web… 😦
