It is usually not that hard to access the Gmail login page. Most users simply need to point their web browser at the standard Gmail address to access their email accounts.
But, this address is not working in all countries and some users do regularly experience difficulties when trying to connect to the Gmail web interface. These users have several different options at hand to log in to Gmail to read and send emails.
Probably the most popular is the configuration of Gmail in a desktop email software program like Microsoft Outlook or Mozilla Thunderbird. This gets rid of any problems the user might experience in the Gmail web interface and is usually recommended for users who experience Gmail login problems.
Update: The Google Mail sign in page has changed, it looks different now. Below is a screenshot of the old sign in page and afterwards a screenshot of the new one that looks identical on all Google product pages.
Users who want to configure Gmail in a desktop email program can look at the support page at the Gmail website to find instructions for several email clients.
Gmail login problems can also be related to the account, for instance when the user forgot the Gmail password or username. A Gmail help page is available that can aid the user in retrieving this data so that a Gmail login once again is possible with that account.
Users looking for the main Gmail login page can visit this url to log into Gmail right now.
