While trying 'Log in' I receive error message 'GMail's login procedure has changed, check for new version'.

    This message has appeared to me like twice in more than one month and I haven't been able to see the real reason why it occurs. Just right click and choose 'login & check mail' and see what happens.

    I'm going to keep this ticket open until you reply to confirm that it works when trying to login again.

    If I try to click it, error appears again (the same). What do you suggest?

    Please edit gmail.cpp and replace
    #undef DUMP_PAGES
    with
    #define DUMP_PAGES

    After that, recompile and launch. If the error occurs a file named gmail_login.html will be located at /tmp; please upload that file

    After recompiling as described in comment 2007-06-20 12:13 and reproducing the issue,
    /tmp/gmail_login.html contains the following:
    Your browser's cookie functionality is turned off. Please turn it on.
    In facts I had the cookies disabled in konqueror, enabling the cookies for google.com domain did the trick.
    Hope it helps someone else as well.

    Thanks for the information.

    I've added it to the help page[1] and I'll try to make KCheckGMail whether cookies are enabled or not.
    I'll keep this ticket open to remind me.
