    Hi everyone ... tonight I can't open my gmail account where I get messages from YOUR forum as well.

    Are you familiar with gmail error 502? How to fix it? I am not sure if it's my computer's problem of gmail's problem. Whatever it is is very annoying and frustrating.

    Please help if you know how to fix it. I already ran ADWCleaner just in case but it did not help. :(

    I will change my e-mail (temporarily perhaps) on your Forum to be able to receive your messages.

    According to Google, this is a temporary error and should resolve itself in a few minutes, up to a couple hours.

    I'd give it awhile, as usually this error is temporary. It's also happening to a lot of users. I've read it on Twitter for the past hour. Many are receiving the 502 error.

    Hi Gurutech, yes it's up and running again. It took about 40-45 minutes. I am just curious if there is a solution to solve this in case I have it in a future and it will take longer than 45 minutes .

    Glad it's up and running again. That error indicates server congestion and usually that's something that can only be waited out. I've seen others either try clearing their browser cache or using a different web browser to rectify it. But most times it's a waiting game :) Google is pretty good at resolving it as fast as they can.
