Broken Gmail account: I have GmailStatus installed which tells me i have 4 new messages, but whenever I try to open my inbox it tells me that "[my] session has expired. Please sign in again." Has anyone found any resources for fixing or reporting a problem with Gmail?

also, GmailStatus is still able to alert me when I get new messages.

I think you can only report problems with Gmail by logging in... Have you tried to remove all Google cookies (session-information is usually stored there)?

I went through this a few days ago, and CKZ is right -- if you google around enough you can find a link to report problems to the Gmail support team, but you have to be logged in to use it. There's an email address, but they auto-bounce email that doesn't come from Gmail. Sigh.

And yeah, in my case deleting all Google cookies and restarting my browser did the trick.

You could get another Gmail account (there are simply oodles out there for the taking) and log your request/complaint that way. That is how I did it when my account was hijacked a week after I got it, back in the day.

Have you tried opening it with a different browser, or on a different computer?

Have you got your computer date set 2 weeks or more into the future?

Might be a bad cookie. Try deleting any Google cookies.
