Problems with Gmail in recent weeks are the result of increased snooping by the Chinese government terrified that recent revolutions in north Africa will somehow spread east. Users say they can access their Gmail accounts, but then find that they can't send or load mails. Others have been unable to access the site or get into …
gmail for business?
Tits up in China it seems - that is one of the problems with this kind of service.

When I was in China, I would create an SSH tunnel (creating local socks5 proxy) over a ping Tunnel (using hans tunnel). I can't imagine they're going down to that level of snooping.
Just had a look at hans tunnel/ tcp over icmp. I was totally unaware that it was possible, let alone it was available to use.

Maybe Google should then leave China as they threatened to many times? Instead of putting their platform at risk.
But I guess having it will come in handy for Schmidt's upcoming Secretary of Commerce job.
Same thing happens here
In my office we do the same but we blame whoever is on holidays or has quit recently for server fails. Blaming an entire country is a bit much though, to be fair.
I wouldn't say that
It has been well known that the Chinese have been getting their paws into a lot lately. There have been a multitude of hacks which have been linked back to Chinese servers.
Interesting that the country that snoops and hacks the most is consistently ignored by your PRC bashing crowd.
