GMail access blocked by your school or office administration?This is the problem many encounter-GMail Blocked.Here is a guide with various tricks to unblock your favorite GMail and enjoy the full mail access at your organization.


1. Using Different URLs

This trick might seem silly,but might work at times.Instead of using the URL gmail.com try using different URLs like mail.google.com,google.com/mail to access your GMail account when GMail is blocked at your school or office. This trick works only if your network/IT administrator has blocked gmail.com alone and left the rest of the domains open (unblocked) as they are not widely known to people. Here is the list of alternative URLs to access GMail

* http://m.gmail.com
* https://gmail.com

To access GMail through iGoogle,

1. Login to iGoogle using your Google Account
2. Add GMail gadget to iGoogle by clicking this link or by using Add Stuff on screen
3. That’s all. Start accessing your GMail inside iGoogle.



3. Access GMail Using Opera Mini Simulator

Use Opera Mini Browser Online Simulator application to access GMail in a small screen window. Opera Mini is a popular web browser for mobile phones. It allows users to work with live demo of Opera Mini that functions exactly like it would when installed on a handset.

Point your browser to http://www.operamini.com/demo/ and start accessing blocked GMail using the URL m.gmail.com.Reading mails on mobile simulator is definitely not convenient as reading them on a full screen browser computer. But when you need to access your GMail urgently, this trick might be helpful to you.

you can read and reply to mails through GMail for Mobile is
amazing. It is my favorite mobile application.
