Google Definitions Asking Users To Email

Google DictionaryThere are many reports in the Google Web Search Help forums that Google Definitions feature is not working on some browsers for some people.

I cannot replicate it, but when you search for things like [what is toast], Google will provide this definition at the top:

Google Define

Instead, users are getting errors that read:

server error comes up...

Please email

I couldn't replicate the issue myself, but here is an old screen shot of such an error:


Thing is, that email address is no long valid. Try emailing it and you will get a "Delivery Status Notification (Failure)" due to the "User unknown" or the user not being a real email account.

Kelly from Google said "Thanks for the info. We're looking into it now."

I am not sure if it is fixed or if they are still working on it at this point.
