    So whenever I go to a site comes up telling me that I am in Germany and I must go to the gmail germany site, Can someone tell me how to tell gmail that I am indeed in America and not Germany. The problem sometimes also occurs when i go to as well.

    You can try a US based web proxy - do a search and set up the proxy in a web browser to do that (don't forget to remove the proxy setting when it is no longer needed). This will be a work around to the problem.

    For a permanent fix, see the options at (I'd recommend enclosing your IP address - you can find that at or other places)

    It looks like your IP address is being resolved (incorrectly, if you are in the US) by Google as belonging to a German ISP. Gmail, in Germany, happens to be a registered trademark of another company and not Google, and Google lost the rights to use that name, so they are being careful.

    [You can also contact you ISP and have them contact Google, if contacting them directly fails.]
