setup.py install fails with the message
ImportError: No module named ClientCookie

As it turns out, ClientCookie is not included in the libgmail release.

    Solution: look for the ClientCookie module on Google.
    But the clientcookie install-script tells you you need updated setuptools and tries to download them by itself, however its url is outdated and doesn't exist anymore. But after more googling you can indeed find the much needed setup tools.

    Suggestion: Include the ClientCookie module in your libgmail distribution.

    Install python-mechanize library then

    cp /usr/local/lib/python2.5/site-packages/libgmail.py \ /usr/local/lib/python2.5/site-packages/libgmail.py.bak
    sed 's/import ClientCookie/import mechanize as ClientCookie/1' \ </usr/local/lib/python2.5/site-packages/libgmail.py.bak \ >/usr/local/lib/python2.5/site-packages/libgmail.py

    Fixed in CVS. Please check out the latest version; if it still doesn't work for you there, let us know.
