I have an app that sends an email using smtplib through smtp.gmail.com using an account I have there. It's been working without any difficulty, but since the outage this afternoon, it now fails with:
"/usr/local/lib/python2.7/socket.py", line 571, in create_connection raise err error: [Errno 101] Network is unreachable
Is it possible that in the course of the outage, gmail.com was somehow removed from the whitelist? Any other possible explanation?
