The problem may be affecting Gmail, as well as Gmail via Google Apps.

Down Right Now reported a "likely service disruption" for Gmail after 9 a.m.

Google's official Gmail Twitter feed has been silent on the issues so far this morning, but Tweeters are sounding off about the problems.

According to tweets, Google is informing some users that messages cannot be delivered because of a server error. The following message pops up after a failed delivery attempt: "Oops... a server error occurred and your email was not sent. (#758)."

Other users on Twitter say that their accounts are inaccessible this morning because of maintenance.
