Iran might have blocked access to Google Gmail webmail service

Online sources are indicating that Iran has blocked access to Gmail webmail service in the country.

Google had this to say:

We have heard from users in Iran that they are having trouble accessing Gmail. We can confirm a sharp drop in traffic and we have looked at our own networks and found that they are working properly. Whenever we encounter blocks in our services we try to resolve them as quickly as possibly because we strongly believe that people everywhere should have the ability to communicate freely online. Sadly, sometimes it is not within our control.

Sources say that Iranian government is planning to launch their own email service for their citizens! And blocking Gmail is just part of that plan!
