Gmail Blocked in China

Google’s Gmail service is not responding in mainland China. From the past six months since Gmail was blocked in mainland
China, users had been able to access it using third-party email
applications such as Microsoft Outlook or Apple Mail.

Large numbers of Gmail web addresses were cut off in China on Friday. Users said the service was still down on Monday. Google’s Transparency Report charts show real-time traffic began to fall in China
late on Christmas Day and hit zero before midday on Dec. 26.
Internet-analytics group Dyn Research additionally said Sunday on Twitter that
there had been an IP-level block of Gmail access on the Chinese mainland.
Google said “we’ve checked and there’s nothing wrong on our end.” “Just Imagine if Gmail users lose their contacts with
Chinese clients. Many people outside China might be forced to switch
away from Gmail.”
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told reporters on
Monday that she had no information about Gmail disappearing, Reuters

“China has reliably had an inviting and supportive attitude
towards foreign investors doing genuine business here,” she said. “We will, as dependably, give an open, straightforward and great environment for foreign organizations in China.”
Zach Smith said “It’s becoming harder and harder to connect and do work in China when services like Gmail are being blocked. Using a VPN (Virtual Private Network) seems to be the only way to doing anything these days online in China.”
