      Was working for me this morning when I logged in via Outlook. There are multiple servers for the googlemail service, it may be that the one your account is hosted on is having issues.

      Don't think it's just the IMAP server .. I've been unable to log in to the POP3 server (using Outlook and Mailwasher) all day since I first tried around 8am, and still not working. Keep having my username &/or Password rejected (yet I know they're correct).

      Not a major issue for me as I've got a forward set up to redirect all my Sky.com mail addressed mail to one of my gmail.com addresses and that works fine, so I still get the mails .. but annoying none-the-less.

      Why would sky be doing maintenance on servers owned by Google?

      All things are possible, I know Google have been doing work in the background on their own servers too so it may be linked to that.
