Thanh Tam, an office worker in Cau Giay (Hanoi), said he could not send mail via Gmail with attachments since early afternoon. "Sending mail with only text is still normal, but when attaching photos, the website reports error. At first I thought there was a problem with the Internet, but many of my partners also reported the same phenomenon," Tam said. .

The above situation doesn't happen to all users. Some users of Gmail and Google Drive said that when trying to switch to another email, sending and receiving is still normal.

Google has not confirmed the problem. However, on the information page of its services, Google displays the state "Disruption" with a wide range of services such as Gmail, Drive, Docs, Chat, Meet, Keep, Voice.
