Google Fixes Gmail Flaw

Google has fixed a bug on its Gmail service that automatically resent e-mail messages.

The move comes after users flooded Google's forums with complaints, saying that multiple copies of each e-mail written were being sent from their accounts.

Google Apps users were the largest group affected by the duplicate mail bug.

Some claimed that Google Apps was a "disaster" for them.

Following the user complaints, Google has announced that it has fixed the issue, and has updated its Apps Status Dashboard to show that Gmail is back to normal.

Speaking about the bug fix, one Google employee wrote on Google's forum: “No more duplicate emails should be going out at this point and new messages you send out now should not be affected by this issue.”

According to tech news site IT Pro, the Google employee claimed that the last duplicate e-mail was sent out at 10:27pm Pacific Time.
