You can request permission to chat with them (hover over their name and click "Chat"), which will allow you to see their online status. However, there's no real way to ensure they are using their email, as they could just deny your request to chat.

Is there a way to check if another gmail user is online? Or, if I know the email address of a gmail user, is there a way I can find out if there account is active? The reason I ask is because I have been trying to get in touch with a friend of mine that has a gmail email address, and have not received a reply, so I'd like to find out if there account is still active, and if there is a way I could tell when they are online, logged onto there gmail account?
