GMail issues. I can log in but once I click to read any entry it takes me right back to the login page.

I've been having login problems with GMail and Google News Alerts for days. I finally got in this morning, but it was very weird: an error message came up in the little square login box, but then the page loaded anyway.

What browser do you use, and is it configured to block cookies from google.com, gmail.google.com, etc.? Whenever I run into this situation, it's due to the fact that I've accidentally blocked cookies for the site in question and the initial login procedure relies on the POST content rather than reading the cookie itself.

Gmail is working for me but it is incredibly slow. Like 5 minutes to bring up an email.

Either they are being attacked or some cluster has fallen over.

Yesterday afternoon I was getting login failures, send errors, and other broken-ness from gmail. I assume Sergy's cat chewed through their T3 again or something.
