This sucks in more ways than you can ever imagine. I just got this error message VIA Gmail after clicking the link to delete the spam messages in my spam folder. Gmail by Google Unusual Usage - Account Temporarily Locked Down To keep our systems healthy, Google has temporarily disabled your account. This primarily occurs when we detect unusually high levels of activity on your account. In most cases, it should take one hour to regain access. In rare cases, it can take up to 24 hours for access to be reinstated. We?re sorry for the inconvenience. Here are some reasons why this could have happened: Receiving, deleting, or downloading large amounts of mail via POP or IMAP in a short period of time. Sending a large number of messages to many people. Being logged into or synchronizing Gmail on many computers, clients, or mobile devices. Browser-related issues. If you find your browser continually reloading while attempting to access your Inbox, it?s probably a browser issue, and it may be necessary to clear your browser?s cache and cookies. Providing access to file-sharing, file-storage software, email analytics services, browser extensions, or third party software that automatically logs in to your Gmail account.

I've had this account since 2005 and have never had an issue with the exception of receiving spam. I typically receive about four hundred and fifty to six hundred spam emails per day but it has been like that since I've had it. As it stands, this is my primary email account and I'm locked out. :rocketwho All of my sales confirmations, customer service alerts, etc., come through this account and once a client clicks submit, the clock starts ticking. I cannot contact Gmail and they offer users with no way to figure out what is wrong or what went wrong. These azz wipes simply lockout the account with no warning, alert or notice. Needless to say, this is a wake up call for me. I stopped using Google search last year and I also cut out Google Analytics and GWT and now I'm going to squash Gmail. Anyone [successfully using] an email client aside from Outlook, that you can intelligently recommend?
