    Yes. Most of the ISP's only route the Google Searching to a local server, or very few of the Google Services.

    TheHxckid, do you have no international cap left? Could you also tell me which lines (relevant to Gmail) you imported into your hosts file?
    Please post the results of 'ping mail.google.com' and 'ping www.gmail.com' -> I'm only interested in the IP address that those hostnames resolve to.

    On a 384 line gmail takes ages to sync via IMAP using outlook for example.
    Nope, that's one thing that won't work

    I've updated my list in my first post by merging/adding all the DNS entries given in this thread. I've also removed all the double entries. Like www.google.com would resolve to www.l.google.com, so I've removed www.google.com.

    If you have a DNS server that won't resolve www.google.com to www.l.google.com, then I would love to get that DNS server's IP address
    I've used the following DNS servers to test my list: 168.210.2.2 (IS), 196.25.1.9 (Telkom), 146.232.128.10 (Stellenbosch Unversity - Internal access only) & 8.8.8.8 (Google DNS).
    To check how the DNS entry is being resolved, use the command-line app: nslookup <hostname>, eg. nslookup www.google.com
    In Linux you can either use nslookup or dig
    Ok I checked and this is all I got, and I can't find a way to adds mail.google.com

    i topped up my account today so i have international again. but we get capped every month so i still need this.
    i copied and pasted everything in your original post into that file. and like i said everything worked but gmail. not sure what you meant exactly with the ping but i assumed i should type it in cmd. this was the IP address i got back

    209.85.227.18 (mail.google.com)
    209.85.227.83 (www.gmail.com)

    hope thats what you wanted

    I see Blog & Gmail are the only two not resolving locally on Cybersmart.

    Can anyone access GMail with local only access.
    The ping suggests that it is local, and the connection to the server doesn't time out, it gets "interupted".

    I haven't had any trouble with Gmail on my Mweb account, using these modifications. If you guys are experiencing problems, please post your ISP package that you're using and also the DNS server IP address if you can get hold of it. Do a ping to the Gmail address that you're using, like mail.google.com or www.gmail.com and post the IP here too.

    ISP : Telkom : Do Broadband Level2
    Ping to www.Google.Com Gets a Reply From 165.165.38.147
    Ping to mail.google.com gets a reply from 196. 23.168.147
    Ping to www.gmail.com times out from 209.85.227.17

    I'm not sure how to check my DNS server.

    EDIT: I changed stuff in the hosts file and all the pings now responds from 196.23.168.147
    In Firefox, Gmail doesn't work, but strangely enough, it works in Chrome.
    Chrome just has an issue with the security certificate.

    I see alot of people is having problems with gmail.. And I thought I was the only one.. ^ ^

    I think gmail isn't fully working with the local system ... yet..

    Because I was actaully thinking that maybe it was because of gmail being down, so I used my phone to go on.. and it worked.. mm.. maybe it's different using a phone?
    Don't know what to say...
