    Hi Everyone, not sure if this is where I need to post this...

    I have been using g4j for over a year without any problem but this morning I could not send emails anymore here is the messages printed in the console:

    Nov 6, 2007 12:31:50 PM send
    INFO: Prepare send mail ...
    Nov 6, 2007 12:31:50 PM org.apache.commons.httpclient.HttpMethodDirector isRedirectNeeded
    INFO: Redirect requested but followRedirects is disabled
    Nov 6, 2007 12:31:50 PM send
    INFO: Mail sent

    Does anyone else have this problem? What can I do about it??

    Thanks a bunch!

      Hi - I'm not having this particular problem, but I'm having problems with other GMail-related applications, and that's how I wound up here.

      Gmail has deployed a new interface, that now supports IMAP and also appears to have different cookies. This may have been to address some security problems.

      Unfortunately, Google APIs don't mention Gmail, so sadly any reverse-engineered approaches at working with their stuff is likely to break in the future for this very reason.

      I think all these packages (FreePOPs, Gmail manager, g4j, etc.) are going to be broken for a while until we all figure out what Google did.
