Not good enough. Their systems clearly are not robust enough.
Maybe not. But if you find an email service that never goes down I'd like a link to that unicorn.

Not only now. I have this issue since Friday. Over the last days I had several issues. iCloud says „Account Error“ and ist not updating. Even on Friday I could not acces my inbox for a whole day. Come on Apple this is 2021 and not 2000. As long as I can remember there wasn’t a single outage in Gmail.
You were saying?
