Google reported a disruption with its email service on Dec. 15 affecting a significant number of users just over 24 hours after reporting an extended system outage.

Five details:

2. When affected users tried to send an email to another Gmail account, they received a bounce notification incorrectly stating "The email account that you tried to reach does not exist."

3. Google said it investigated and began restoring service about 4:45 p.m. CST. The problem was completely resolved by 5:51 p.m. CST, Google said.

4. Google has not disclosed the cause of the disruption.

5. Early on the morning of Dec. 14, Google services reported an outage affecting Gmail and other G Suite applications as well as YouTube. The company's video conferencing tool and spreadsheets were offline, and the company said the outage was caused by an internal server problem.
