A Gmail glitch earlier this month resulted in some users accidentally deleting emails and unintentionally reporting others as spam (via The Verge). The bug occurred when users were managing their inboxes, and the system inadvertently applied these actions to the wrong email messages.

In a notice appearing for some Gmail users, Google confirmed this issue occurred between January 15 and 22 and is now fixed. It only affected users who accessed Gmail via the iOS app, a mobile browser, or offline in a desktop browser. Google advises users to check their spam folder and trash for emails that were marked incorrectly.

The issue is the second round of technical difficulties for Google's Gmail service in less than a week. Late last week, Google's cloud services went offline for approximately an hour. The Friday afternoon outage affected Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Talk, Google Drive, Google Groups and other services.

Except MobileMe and iCloud are usually down most of the time compared to Google's services.

This isn't even remotely true.

went to @me a few years ago and not had a problem with it. I use my old gmail for random crap though. @me for serious stuff. Works well, less of a hacking threat.

Good thing I primarily use Apple Mail on iOS and Mac, and that my main inbox is on a server in my house.

The first fruits of shoving Google out of my life are yielding themselves. (There's also something super satisfying about having your own domain... It feels so much more professional or something.)

Good job I don't use Gmail. Not that a bug like this is really a problem as long as effected messages are in your Spam or Trash folder.

If you guys are trying to say that @me, @mac, @icloud emails have no problems, then I KKNOW you guys are joking. Apple email has been the worse email system I've ever used.
