The company provided a later update at 2:46PM EST today noting that it’s continuing to investigate and confirming it’s discovered that “some messages sent to consumer Gmail accounts are being rejected due to authentication enforcement.”
Google plans to provide another update by 3:46PM EST with more details on when it expects to resolve the issues.
