How do you fix Gmail’s ‘error page’ when you don’t have access to the Gmail web app?
We’ve seen Gmail’s error page in action before, and it’s not the only issue that users of the service are experiencing.
We’ve also seen Gmail make some notable changes to how it handles certain types of requests, and this week, the company has confirmed that it will be rolling out a new error page, which will include details about what’s going on with an email account.
The new error pages will also contain the information that users need to contact their account owners to resolve a potential issue.
Users who received a new email, for example, would now be able to check the “Help” box to learn more about what is going on, as well as access a full explanation of the error.
The error pages are only going to be available for a limited time, though, and those who need help with their accounts can go to the new error site and get in touch with a Gmail representative.
Google is working on improving the way it handles error pages for Gmail, so users who need support with Gmail should be able expect them in the coming weeks.
We’ve seen many of our users experience the “error page” error before, though we’ve yet to hear of a serious issue like this.
Google’s support site lists a few other notable examples, like people who received “This is the last day to create an account” emails, which were not created or updated in the last 24 hours.
These messages were due to the fact that Gmail users were unable to set up a new Gmail account after receiving an email from Google, which means that a user has received an email that they haven’t yet read and that’s causing the error page to pop up.
