Weird German GMail error
Weird German GMail error

The error message says

Lieber Nutzer,

in Deutschland heißt unser E-Mail-Service Google Mail, nicht Gmail.

Sie können Ihre E-Mails in Deutschland direkt unter http://mail.google.com abrufen.

Ihr Google-Team

Der E-Mail-Service von Google ist in Deutschland nicht mehr über die von Ihnen eingegebene URL abrufbar.

Allgemeine Informationen zu Google finden Sie in Deutschland wie gewohnt unter www.google.de oder www.google.com.

Which translated using Babelfish comes out as

Their googleteam The email service of does not google is in Germany any more over the URL entered by you callably.

Kind of confused why I’m seeing this given I’m sat in the UK…

  1. I am getting this as well in California. It is strange, but going to mail.google.com does resolve the issue. Sadly, when I quickly type mail or gmail into Firefox it wants to go to gmail.google.com, so I run into this when I type without thinking.

  2. I’m getting this too. The Gmail icon on my browser takes me there – it used to work. I can get at my mail using mail.google.com, but I want to set the default for the icon to go there instead.
