AT&T Mobility Data Network Down [UPDATED]

The data network for AT&T Mobility seems to be down in the northwest Atlanta area. No Media Net, no google, nothing. I wonder if this is affecting iPhone users.

UPDATE: At about 6:45 pm EDT it was working again.

RESOLVED: Gmail Problems (after enabling and using IMAP)

I just spent a half hour using IMAP in Mozilla Thunderbird Portable Edition. After using it for a little bit, I decided I wanted to check that the changes I made in Thunderbird were in fact reflected in the webmail.
After attempting to log in it appeared that nothing happened. I tried this multiple times to no avail. I then entered an incorrect password to see if anything was happening and sure enough I got an error that the password was wrong. I have since submitted an error notification to Google and am expecting a response any day now.

Well, I (sort of) found out what was causing my Gmail webmail account to stop letting me log in. I had to delete all of the cookies related to Google. After I did that I was instantly able to log in.

IMAP from Gmail

It appears that Gmail has finally enabled IMAP access for people who don't want to download all their messages. IMAP enables email users to have their email available anywhere they can access it rather than only in the email client that emails are downloaded to via POP.
