If you're having problems with your Gmail this morning, it's not just you.

At its handy App Status Dashboard, Google confirms that it Gmail is experiencing a "service disruption."

"The delivery of some messages is being delayed and attachments may fail to download," Google says. "This issue is affecting less than an estimated 0.024% of the Gmail user base."

Another update is expected shortly, and we will update this post at that time. For now, use Google Chat or pick up the phone and place a call if you want to make sure your communication has gone through.

Update 2:29: Google says it is continuing to investigate and that the delays are now affecting "less than 50% of Gmail users" -- up significantly from the initial report. 

Update 3:11: Google says that things are working again for "some users" and should be up and running for everyone else "within the next 1 hours." But, they add, "Please note this time frame is an estimate and may change."

Update 4:59: Google has resolved the delays and other issues "for most affected users." At a posting at 4:00, the company said it expected the remaining backlog to clear over the next three hours.
