BREAKING: Gmail Is Having Some Sort Of Catastrophic Failure

If you’re trying to send an email to a Gmail account, you are likely getting this error message:

550-5.1.1 The email account that you tried to reach does not exist.”

This is to a valid Gmail address that I have been sending email to for years.

I have seen this since early this evening and Google confirms this on its services dashboard, writing at 1:30 PM Pacific that they’re impacting a “significant” number of users. But they also claim that the issues are resolved. However, I’m not seeing that as I still can’t send emails to Gmail users. So maybe Google is as premature as a virgin by declaring this as fixed. I’ll continue to watch this and update accordingly.

UPDATE: Gmail seems to be working as per this Tweet from Proton Mail:
