Mail via the web interface appears to be working from here. XMPP is firewalled off where I am at right now so I can not check the status of that.

London (UK) - mail is up over IMAP. The "contacts list"/chatbox in Gmail is a
Web wrapper around their Google Talk XMPP server, which I use through a
standalone IM client. And guess what? I can log in but presence-and-
availability info isn't being updated. returns "Your message
could not be delivered - reason:"""
