GMail got naked!!!!!
If you are one of those web-citizens, who are really interested to know what all the flaws of Google. Read the story.
On Dec 18th 2006, some GMail users started complaining about their inbox getting cleaned up. Yes, the bug has found a back door entry into Google racks. On Dec 26th, the Google spokesman said that they are trying to keep a fixed eye so that users data is safe.
They are in talks with the users who lost the data and trying to figure out, upto what extent the data backup procedure may help them in restoring the data.
With Orkut,GMail, Docs& Spreadsheets, YouTube etc Google, no doubt is getting heavy traffic but handling the data safely will be the challenge.
Whatever, I would suggest you to quickly go for the POP3 access else, you can also pay big for it.
