A number of Gmail users are complaining that their e-mail has mysteriously vanished. After TechCrunch picked up the story, Google issued a public apology, stating that the problem affected only 60 users. There don’t seem to be any noticeable patterns in the group of affected users.
Google seems confident that it is the result of an “isolated problem”, but so far no specific details have been provided. Some of the affected users report that Google has restored a week or two of e-mail, but most of their messages were unrecoverable.
